Home to the world famous Coolemore Stud, responsible for producing some of the finest thoroughbreds ever to race, Tipperary is a county rich in equestrian tradition. It is only right, therefore, that it should be host some of the best horseracing in the country. The first meeting of Tipperary races was held in March 1848 and racing began on the present site in September 1916 and has gone from strength to strength since.
There is a buzz and an energy to the Tipperary races that is simply infectious and the team has taken great care to ensure that everyone is kept entertained, young or old, horse fanatic or social butterfly, so that there’s something for everyone.
Ideally situated, the beautiful countryside of the Golden Vale is the setting for flat and national hunt racing that is a joy to behold. The passion and excitement that is aroused by these magnificent animals is unforgettable.
