The Kerrygold Irish Oaks – Saturday 20th July 2019


For generations, our farmers have mastered Ireland’s uniquely rich grass. Working hand in hand with the best that nature has to offer allows them to produce the highest quality milk, which is used to create our delicious golden butter. On the same Irish grass lies The Curragh. Expertise in soil, irrigation and grass management has cemented it as home to the masters of horse racing. Now these two great Irish traditions are coming together in one of the most prestigious race meetings of the flat racing season.

Taking place on Saturday 20th July 2019, as part of The Curragh’s summer festival, The Kerrygold Irish Oaks also promises to be one of the most stylish race days of the summer racing calendar featuring the Kerrygold “Fashions on the Field” best dressed competition.
