Where is Naas Racecourse?
Naas Racecourse is 1km east of the town of Naas (rhymes with mace) in County Kildare off the R445. It is 30km west of Dublin along the N7 and close to J9.
Sallins and Naas is the nearest train station at 4km away with free shuttle buses operating on racedays. There are also buses from Dublin Airport and Busaras Bus Station to the track for meetings.
What is Naas Racecourse famous for?
The first Naas Races were held in 1924 with the track becoming a popular dual-purpose racecourse with fans and trainers.
It now hosts 19 fixtures a year including Cheltenham Trials Day in late February and BBQ and Music Evening meetings in the summer.
Naas Racecourse Track specifics
Naas is a left-handed undulating galloping one-and-a half mile (2400m) tri-oval with a four-furlong (800m) uphill home straight. The steepness of the finish and overall profile prompts comparisons with Cheltenham and it is generally regarded as a very fair track on the flat and over jumps.
There are chutes for races of a mile (1600m) and under with sprints run on a straight track. The chase course is outside the hurdles course with stiff fences.
Naas Racecourse Biggest meeting
The first Sunday in January is Winter Ladies Day which features the track's sole Grade 1, the Slaney Novice Hurdle. Winners often go on to big things at the Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals.
On the flat, the track hosts two Group 3s - the Blue Wind Stakes for fillies in mid-May and the Fillies' Sprint Stakes later that month. But the most valuable race is now the Ballyhane Stakes, Ireland's richest juvenile contest, in late August.
