What is Tipperary Racecourse Famous For?
The first Tipperary Races were held at Barronstown just south of the current venue in 1848. They were moved to Limerick Junction in 1916 with the track renamed Tipperary 70 years later.
Affording stunning views of the local countryside, Tipperary hosts 11 meetings from April to November with most of them held on Thursday evenings.

Istabraq made victorious seasonal debuts at Tipperary (1997-99) ahead of his three Champion Hurdle triumphs.
Tipperary Racecourse Track Specifics
Tipperary is a left-handed flat nine-furlong (1800m) rectangular circuit. The flat and hurdles tracks are on the outside of a sharp chase course. The home straight is two-and-a-half furlongs (500m) in length but prominent racers still have an advantage.
There is a straight five-furlong (1000m) track which is fast and flat while the ground can become very testing.
Tipperary Racecourse Biggest Meeting
'Super Sunday' is the first half of Tipperary's season-ending two-day meeting in early October. It is Ireland's only card featuring a Graded National Hunt race and a Group flat race.
There are actually three Grade 3s on the day headed by the Istabraq Hurdle, the track's most prestigious and valuable jumps race. The Group 3 Concorde Stakes is the flat highlight of the year along with the Group 3 Fairy Bridge Stakes for fillies and mares run in late August. Ladies Day is the first Thursday of July.
