FLAT: Naas Racecourse is a left-handed track of about one and a half miles. It is very much a galloping track and has a stiff four-furlong straight. There is a two-furlong chute at the entrance to the straight that allows for five- and six-furlong races to be run on a straight course. Medium to high stalls have fared best in recent years.

NATIONAL HUNT: Naas is a left-handed oval track with a circuit of a mile and a half. This is a galloping track in character, with a stiff uphill finish, and it suits staying types. The chase course, which is on the outside of the hurdles course, has eight fences to a circuit, two of them in the home straight of almost four furlongs, and there is a run-in of over a furlong.

ABOUT: Located in County Kildare, Naas Racecourse now hosts eighteen race meetings and aside from top class horse racing there are events of all kinds including family fun days, summer barbeque evenings, live music events and ladies days on race days throughout the year. Founded in 1924, Naas has grown steadily in popularity over the years, and is situated just 18 miles from Dublin City.

Naas is a mixed venue that stages a lot of flat cards in the summer and jumps in the winter. For a stiff track it does tend to suit horses who race close to the pace. There are two different kinds of ground at Naas. From the time you pas the winning post to the time you reach the seven-furlong marker the soil is quite black and can be quite testing. It can then be much quicker from there home.
