Since its opening in 1924, Cork’s popularity is such that many routinely visit the course all year round to make the most of the good quality racing on offer.
The track is also host to the Easter Festival, a three day meeting which brings in record crowds on a yearly basis; It is the most popular time for the racecourse.

The flat course is a distance of twelve furlongs and is in the shape of an oval. Therefore the track can host the vast majority of flat races all the way up to 1m6f.
The Cork Course
The course also has an additional two furlong straight attached which enables six furlong and seven furlong races to be purely races on a home straight. This was built in 2017 and makes the course only the second track in Ireland that is able to host such races.
The bends on the track are relatively sharp, which means that races over seven furlongs often have a slight bias towards the lower inside draw as there is less distance to travel and horses can swoop off the bend and use the rail to guide them over the line.
The course can often favour the front running types as the way the race often pans out means that those caught in behind don’t have enough time or energy to latch on to the pace.
The National Hunt course is a track that many are fond of due to how meetings there rarely get abandoned, even in the winter months. The track is besides a river so when downpour is excessive then it can lead to the course becoming flooded.
However, over time the silt has worn into the track and made it quite drainable due to the sand. This means that even when water does land on the surface, it does become absorbed or filter away quite quickly.
The course itself is also a right-handed oval shaped course. The track itself is incredibly flat, with those who can keep up a fast gallop often benefitting from how the track is structured as they benefit from the extensive stretches of flat, clean grass.
However, the bias to gallopers is not significant and all in all it is an incredibly fair track. Although there are no uphill or downhill patches, the course does take a fair bit of riding from the jockeys.
This is due to how frequent the fences are on both the back straight and the home straight, four on the back and three coming up to the finishing line.
The bends on both the hurdles and chase circuits are incredibly wide and, when there are a reasonable amount of runners, a good few gaps frequently open up – it would be a surprise for owners and jockeys to justify a loss with getting caught in behind on the bends.
