What is Thurles Racecourse Famous For?
The first Thurles Races were held in 1732 with a three-day meeting taking place in June. It is the only family-owned racecourse in Ireland and, while it is basic in terms of facilities and trimmings, it is a proper National Hunt track with a great atmosphere and high-quality racing.
There are 11 fixtures per year from October to March, the vast majority of which are held on Thursday afternoons.
Even after the heaviest of downpours, Thurles usually has raceable ground thanks to its excellent drainage. With precious few cards lost to the elements, it earned the nickname of 'Ireland's first all-weather track'.
Thurles Racecourse Track Specifics
Thurles is a right-handed undulating sharp 10-furlong (2000m) oval with sharp turns. The back straight is on the incline with a downhill home turn before the two-furlong (400m) uphill home straight.
In chases, there is a one-furlong (200m) run-in from the last of the seven fences on the circuit.
Biggest Meetings at Thurles Racecourse
The Grade 2 Kinloch Brae Chase is the track's highlight on the penultimate Sunday in January. Run over two and a half miles (4000m), it was won by Don Cossack (2016) and Sizing John (2017) en route to Cheltenham Gold Cup glory. Also on the card is the Grade 2 Anaglog's Daughter Mares Novice Chase.
