Cork Races

Cork Racecourse is a right-handed and relatively even horse racing venue outside the town of Mallow in County Cork. Used for both Irish flat and National Hunt events over jumps, it lies east of Killarney and southwest of Tipperary, making it one of the southernmost tracks in the Emerald Isle.

As well as a straight of seven furlongs for flat races, the round course makes a circuit of about a mile-and-a-quarter. Despite being a fair and level track, it is best suited by strong galloping horses.

There are both black type and Graded events held here. The most famous of Cork races are the Group 3 Munster Oaks for fillies and mares over a mile-and-a-half in summer and the Grade 2 Hilly Way Chase for two-mile steeplechasers in winter.

Cork Races Tips

  • Over jumps it’s hard to look past trainer Willie Mullins at Cork Racecourse after his record 10 wins in the Hilly Way Chase between 2007 and 2019. Unsurprisingly, he was the leading jumps handler for the five seasons from 2015-16 to 2019-20 with 38 winners from 124 runners – a 31 per cent strike rate.
  • Stable jockey Paul Townend operated at a 25 per cent win ratio in the same period.
  • With the flat meetings, Aidan O’Brien enhanced his Munster Oaks record to six wins thanks to his victory with Snow in 2020. Over the previous five seasons, however, he tied with Dermot Weld for most winners of Cork races with 25 each.
  • Ger Lyons had the best percentage with 22 per cent of his runners scoring. Seamie Heffernan and Billy Lee are the jockeys to follow as both had a 17 per cent success rate.

Cork Racecourse Behind Closed Doors

Cork races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Cork Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Cork races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Cork Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
