Racecourse Guide

Horse racing activity in this area of County Mayo goes back as far as the 17th century, but Ballinrobe has been an active racecourse since 1921. Perhaps the most famous horse to grace the field here was Doran’s Pride, a Stayers’ Hurdle winner and second twice in the Cheltenham Gold Cup during the 1990s. Ballinrobe encapsulates what Irish racing is all about.
