FLAT: Leopardstown Racecourse is a wide, left-handed oval track of around a mile and three quarters in extent. The course is fairly level except for a slight rise from the last bend and the turns are easy. It is essentially galloping in character, and there is little evidence of a draw bias.

NATIONAL HUNT: The Leopardstown course is a wide, left-handed oval track, about a mile and three quarters in length. The course is fairly level, with easy turns except for a slight rise from the last bend. Leopardstown provides a fair test, although three of the fences in the back straight are close together and the finishing straight is relatively short. The inner hurdles course, used occasionally, is rather sharper in character than the chase track and tends to provide a significant test of tactical speed.

ABOUT: Located in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Leopardstown racecourse was completed in 1888 and can be found six miles south of the Dublin city centre. Racing takes place all year round, with about 22 meetings per year.

The only racecourse in County Dublin is Leopardstown, the venue for the big Christmas meeting in Ireland, the Dublin Racing Festival and the first day of Irish Champions Weekend on the flat. It’s a fabulous racecourse with a long drag home from the last seven furlongs which isn’t obvious to the naked eye. It has a wonderful chase track featuring two fences away from the stands and six down the back, a tricky enough second half and a very stiff track both over obstacles and on the Flat. Leopardstown stages a lot of Ireland’s premier races and is an incredible course.
