Leopardstown is undoubtedly one of the top three racecourses in Ireland, and one of the World’s top equine racing venues. Home to races on the flat such as the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes, to National Hunt season highlights such as the Grade 1 Irish Champion Hurdle and of course, the Grade 1 Lexus Chase over Christmas. A true test of the thoroughbred, Leopardstown is a 1m6f left-handed course with a fair uphill finish. This place is a must for anyone who enjoys top class racing and entertainment to boot. Leopardstown has seen some of racing’s greats engage in battle here, not least names like Galileo and Best Mate. It is a regular hunting ground for the mighty Hurricane Fly who continues to harvest the Irish Champion Hurdle, but its calendar of top races naturally attracts the very best horses, trainers and owners from around the world and of course a legion of die-hard racing fans who flock to experience the very best that Ireland has to offer in this sport.
