Pure racing entertainment
Since the first meeting was held in June 1914, the course has become recognised as one of the best trial courses for both steeplechasing and flat racing.
The Thyestes Chase in January and the Red Mills Trial Hurdle a month later keep the course in the public eye and there other good races scattered througthout the year. The course is a right-handed undulating track of one mile and four furlongs in length. It is 13km east of Kilkenny and 130km south of Dublin.
