Where is Leopardstown Racecourse?
Leopardstown Racecourse is in the Foxrock suburb of Dublin, 8km south of Dublin City Centre. It is the only racetrack in County Dublin.
Sandyford and Central Park on the LUAS Tram Green Line are both a short walk from the track with a free raceday shuttle bus from the former. The 700 bus from Dublin Airport terminates at the Clayton Hotel near the racecourse.
What is Leopardstown Racecourse Famous For?
The first Leopardstown Races were held in 1888 with the track modelled on Sandown Park in England. It is Ireland's premier dual purpose racecourse with 23 fixtures per year, staging 13 Grade 1 races over jumps and two Group 1s on the flat.
Track Specifics at Leopardstown Racecourse
Leopardstown is a left-handed largely flat 14-furlong (2800m) oval with easy turns. The home straight features a steady rise although it is little more than a furlong (200m) to the winning post.
Very much suited to long-striding gallopers, Leopardstown features stiff fences with three in quick succession on the back straight. The hurdles course is to the inner and somewhat tighter than the chase track.
Biggest Meetings at Leopardstown Racecourse
Leopardstown boasts two outstanding jumps meetings. The four-day Christmas Festival begins on St Stephen's Day (Boxing Day in Britain) and features seven Grade 1s including the Leopardstown Christmas Chase. There is also the two-day Dublin Racing Festival in early February with eight Grade 1s headlined by the Irish Champion Hurdle on the Saturday and the Irish Gold Cup on the Sunday.
On the flat, the highlight is the first half of Irish Champions Weekend in mid-September. The card includes the track's two Group 1s – the Irish Champion Stakes and the Matron Stakes for fillies and mares.
