Easter Monday 18th April 2022
The BoyleSports Irish Grand National has become a stalwart at the heart of the Irish sporting calendar. A race which encapsulates everything that is great about Irish racing, affords connections the opportunity to etch their names into history and join an elusive group who have been fortunate enough to be successful in this race. The BoyleSports Irish Grand National is the richest chase in the Irish calendar, standing at a whopping €500,000. The substantial prize fund, coupled with the reputation of the race attracts the game’s best runners and riders to Fairyhouse to take on this demanding course.
What is unique about the BoyleSports Irish Grand National is that it captures
individuals from every walk of life, not just regular racegoers. People
throughout the country are enthralled by the event and often have various
unique ways of picking a winner.
Freewheelin Dylan won the 2021 contest at odds of 150/1 for local trainer Dermot McLoughlin and jockey Ricky Doyle.
Easter Monday is also Ladies Day and attracts some of Ireland’s most stylish ladies. Here at Fairyhouse we encourage brilliance on and off the track and invite competitors to showcase their unique styles incorporating colour, emerging trends and tasteful accessories in the hope of winning this coveted prize.
