Venue: Horse Racing at Clonmel
Racing on Thursday 6th December 2012. A popular venue for horse racing for more than one hundred and fifty years, Clonmel Racecourse ( Powerstown Park ) in County Tipperary, is a place of excitement, entertainment and unparalleled natural beauty. Every season has its own charms here, from the warm summer meets of sun and style, to winter’s Clonmel Oil Chase, a showpiece of champions and the promise of a hot port at the end of the day.
For all the enjoyment on offer, the racing is taken seriously and has featured some of the biggest names in the industry, such as the celebrated Beef or Salmon, Danoli and the ever-popular Doran's Pride. Powerstown is recognised as a demanding national hunt course and features a stiff uphill climb, followed by a gradual downhill run with an uphill finish. With exceptional views of racing from all points in the enclosure, the one hundred and sixty acre park is simply an ideal location. Powerstown is conveniently located within easy distance of Waterford, Cork and Shannon airports and near the historic town of Clonmel.
