Group 1 Thoroughbred Horse Races Ireland



The Curragh is the spiritual home for Grade 1 Thoroughbred Horse Races in Ireland. Indeed, in 1868 this was officialy recognised by an Act of Parliament. The name comes from the Gaelic Cuirreach meaning racecourse. Horse racing has been carried on for centuries at the Curragh although the first time this was recorded was in the early 1700s.
