Where is Tramore Racecourse?
Tramore Racecourse is to the north of the seaside town in County Waterford. It is 12km south of Waterford via the R675.
Plunkett train station in Waterford is the closest with the 360 bus stopping at Ard Na Groi by the track.
What is Tramore Racecourse famous for?
The first Tramore Races were held on Tramore Beach in 1785 but disturbances in the 1860s forced their suspension. They were revived in 1888 before stormy seas prompted a switch to the current location on Graun Hill in 1912.
Major refurbishment in 1997 brought the track up to date and Tramore held Europe's first race meeting of the new millennium with a record 11,000 crowd in attendance. It stages 12 fixtures per year with just one of those on the flat.
Tramore Racecourse Track Specifics
Tramore is a right-handed very undulating sharp seven-furlong (1400m) wedge-shaped circuit with tight bends. The long run to the final turn is downhill before an uphill home straight of close to two furlongs (400m).
The track's unique nature lends itself to course specialists with nimble types preferred to gallopers. Stalls are not used with flag starts for the one flat card per year.
Tramore Racecourse Biggest Meeting
The four-day August Festival is the track highlight from Thursday to Sunday in the middle of the month with Ladies Day on Saturday. It comprises three jumps cards and Tramore's sole flat meeting. With the beach and funfair nearby, it is an attractive meeting for families.
New Year's Day is also popular including the track's most valuable race, the Grade 3 New Year's Day Chase. In 2020, it was won for a second consecutive year by Al Boum Photo who went on to retain his Cheltenham Gold Cup crown.
