Derby Day is the biggest day in the Irish racing calendar, when the best 3 your old thoroughbreds in the world come to the Curragh to race for Europe’s richest prize in the Irish Derby.

If you want to really fit in you need to dress up, and I mean UP! Hats are an essential for the ladies and many will have spent the previous weeks on serious buying sprees in the smartest boutiques in Dublin, London and Paris being kitted out for the Derby.

Sometimes the racing seems almost overlooked, such is the glittering style on the rails, but it will be a high quality card right through with hotly contested races over all three days guaranteed, and for anyone with a real interest in horseracing or in horses this is a must.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
