ST PATRICK’S THURSDAY

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day on Day Three of The Festival. It is a typically Irish affair with plenty of Guinness available in the Guinness Village plus racegoers are treated to Irish music around the course throughout the day.

As well as the atmosphere, the racing is top notch with The JLT Novices’ Chase kicking the day off, as well as The Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle and The Ryanair Steeple Chase.

Rather aptly, in 2017 it saw the resurgence of the formidable Irish duo that is Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh as they produced an incredible four-timer. Including scoring in the feature race The Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle as Nichols Canyon proved his doubters wrong to win.

St Patrick’s Thursday is a day that is guaranteed to be full of fun and fantastic racing – one not to be missed.

St Patrick’s Thursday 2017 begins:

Gates Open: 10.30

First Race: 13.30

Last Race: 17.30
