Gowran Park Racecourse is a right-handed undulating horse racing venue for Irish National Hunt events over jumps and on the flat in County Kilkenny. Used throughout the year, a full circuit of the track is about a mile-and-a-half.
Best known for jumps races during the winter months, there are three Grade 2 events held here. The Gowran Park Champion Chase over two-and-a-half miles in October, and the John Mulhern Galmoy Hurdle over three miles in January and Red Mills Chase over two-and-a-half miles in February.
The extended three-mile Thyestes Chase, meanwhile, is one of only a few Grade A handicaps held in Ireland. Gowran Park races favour horses who run prominently and up with the pace.

Gowran Park 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 Gowran Park Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Gowran Park races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Gowran Park Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
