What is Fairyhouse Racecourse Famous For?

Track Specifics at Fairyhouse Racecourse
Fairyhouse is a right-handed galloping square-shaped 14-furlong (2800m) circuit. The track climbs throughout the three-furlong (600m) home straight and the first turn before descending on the back straight, but they are gentle undulations with the track considered a fair test.
There can be congestion on the far rail in sprint races on the flat with high draws making it easier to stay out of trouble.
Biggest Meetings at Fairyhouse Racecourse
Fairyhouse's three-day Easter Festival is one of Ireland's top meetings. There is the Grade 1 Ryanair Gold Cup for novice chasers on Easter Sunday, but the undoubted highlight is the Irish Grand National on Monday with a bumper crowd for the race first run in 1870. Amateur Ann Ferris was the first winning female jockey on Bentom Boy in 1984 with Desert Orchid carrying top weight to victory in 1990.
The two-day Winter Festival in late November boasts an exceptional Sunday card with three Grade 1 contests headlined by the Hatton's Grace Hurdle.
