NATIONAL HUNT: Downpatrick is a narrow, right-handed track with a circuit of around eleven furlongs. This is not a track for a long-striding horse, given the numerous undulations and turns. There are six fences to a circuit of the chase course, with the last two close together before the uphill home straight of over a furlong.

ABOUT: Though the first race meeting held at this track took place in 1685, Downpatrick is one of two Northern Irish racecourses today (Down Royal being the other). As horse racing is run on an “All Ireland” basis, these tracks in Northern Ireland fall under the purview of Horse Racing Ireland rather than the British Horseracing Authority.
