Tips for Galway Races

Situated at Ballybrit Racecourse in Galway, it hosts one of the highlights of the summer with the week long Galway Festival. It hosts both Flat and National Hunt racing, dating back to 1869. Ladies Day (Thursday) of the Festival is one of, if not the, best attended race days in Ireland.

Course: It’s a right-handed mile and a quarter circuit which is fairly undulating. There are some tight turns which plays into the hands of speedy types for our tips. But there is an uphill finish of two furlongs so horses have to stay the distance well in order to get home.

Draw Bias: There’s a number of good races over seven furlongs through the season. It’s slightly favourable for our tips to be drawn towards the middle-high numbers.

Feature Meeting: The Galway Festival lasts seven days and begins on the last Monday in July every year. It’s greatly attended and the racing is of high quality.

  • Monday – Connacht Hotel Handicap is the feature race
  • Tuesday – Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap (Premier Handicap) is the feature race
  • Wednesday – Galway Plate Day
  • Thursday – Ladies Day (Galway Hurdle)
  • Friday – Guinness Handicap (Premier Handicap) is the feature race
  • Saturday – Super Saturday
  • Sunday – Final day
