Guide For Owners
We offer a warm welcome to our owners & trainers, their horses and their teams to Tipperary Racecourse. Our goal is to ensure your day is both successful and enjoyable. From the trainer entering your horse, to the grooms traveling with your horse, we look after all aspects of your visit with great attention to detail.
To aid you in your preparation for your day at the races Horse Racing Ireland will email you after entry stage with all relevant information. You can also call us at the racecourse on +353 (62) 51357.
From entry stage up to the day of racing we supply going reports on our website and social media channels.
Tickets & Hospitality
On arrival at the turnstiles please ensure you have your Association of Irish Racecourse (AIR) badge with you. You will then be given an Owners & Trainers badge, a complimentary race card and a voucher for food in the Owners & Trainers bar. The badge gives you access to the parade ring and the Owners and Trainers bar overlooking the finishing post.
For any additional tickets that are required there is a 10% discount on tickets and hospitality for owners. Please contact our Hospitality Department on +353 (62) 51357 with any requests for connections.
Tipperary is a flat, left-handed, oval track of a mile and two furlongs in length. There is a straight sprint track of five furlongs that joins with the main track at the entrance to the two and a half furlong straight. A low draw is favoured on the round track, while a high draw has been slightly favoured in big fields at five furlongs, more so on soft going.
Throughout the year the highest level of attention is given to the racing surface to provide the best surface possible at all times. For National Hunt races there are five hurdles and six chase fences on the circuit to test the skills of the best horses in Ireland and the UK.
Stables And Accommodation
Horses travelling from overseas have use of our secure overnight stables. While your horse is here the best equine care is available, from farriers to vets, to ensure the highest welfare standards are met.
Accommodation for grooms travelling from overseas is also looked after by the racecourse and where possible grooms will be put up in accommodation directly across the road from the racecourse.
Winning owners will be invited to our dedicated winning connections suite after the race to relive the race and celebrate your win in style. You will also be given a complimentary copy of the race and your trophy/memento to bring home.
