Dundalk Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Dundalk is Ireland’s first and only flood-lit all-weather horse racing and greyhound track, Dundalk is now a vital part of the Irish racing jigsaw puzzle and it is hard to think that before 2007 when it opened, there wasn’t a facility like it – in fact, it is the only venue in the world which combines both horse and greyhound racing. Now, flat and some jump horses utilise the all-weather track for preparation runs where many courses may not have ideal ground or races, along with the course having a strong program for the poly-track specialists and regulars. The track is a left-handed, flat oval of 10 furlongs, with a 5 furlong sprint track adjoining the home straight. It is known to be a very fair course, if a little sharp off the home bend – but once they straighten up there is ample distance for any horse to put themselves in with a chance.
