For generations racehorse owners in Ireland have had access to these trail blazers, competing at the highest level and training in an environment and climate that is perfect for raising and racing the best horses in the world. Owners racing in Ireland have access to a top class race programme. Over 10% of the Irish programme is black type; higher than our nearest neighbours in Britain and France. With some of the best prize-money in Europe and leading festivals like The Longines Irish Champions Weekend and the Punchestown Festival to name just two, Irish racing offers the perfect blend of opportunities and rewards for any racehorse owner. As well as the top festivals in Ireland, Irish trainers regularly target the best of the European Festivals, so for a runner at Royal Ascot or Longchamp, look to an Irish trainer. Regardless of the grade, over jumps or on the flat, you can rest assured that your horse will be given the very best opportunity to excel in Ireland.
