Gowran Park Racing
About the course:
Gowran Park, in County Kilkenny, has developed into one of Ireland's most picturesque race courses. The track hosts 16 race meetings throughout the year featuring both National Hunt and Flat Race Meetings.
The racing season at Gowran Park has quality fixtures spread evenly throughout the year starting with the Thyestes Handicap Chase in January.
February brings the Red Mills Trial which is often used as a prep run for Cheltenham.
In early March, the Tetratema Cup is a popular hunter chase event which shares the card with the high valuable Shamrock Chase (Grade B Handicap for 5yo+).
The flat season tradionally kicks off at Gowran Park with the Listed Victor McCalmont Memorial Stakes on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend.
The June and July fixtures also include some high-class jump and flat racing.
Highlights of the flat programme include the Hurry Harriet Fillies Stakes (Listed) and Gowran Park's only Group 3 race, The Denny Cordell Lavarack and Lanwades Stud EBF Fillies Stakes which takes place on the last Saturday in September.
The course is a right-handed undulating track of one mile and four furlongs in length.
