Final Leg of 2023 Corinthian Challenge Set for Saturday

Leopardstown | Leopardstown Races

The final race of this year's three-race Corinthian Challenge is set to take place at Leopardstown on Saturday, Oct. 21. The Corinthian Challenge Charity Race Series provides aid to Injured Irish Jockeys and has raised in excess of €500,000 since its inception in 2016.

Corinthians participate in three races during the course of the challenge, each time at a different racecourse. Kildare man Damien Moore is currently on top of the leaderboard with 17 points, followed by Michael O'Neill and Martina Dempsey with 10 points each and Katy Brown and Niamh Ashe with five points, closely followed by Aimee Murphy with three points.

“In 2014 IIJ [Injured Irish Jockeys] was set up to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support our injured jockeys,” IIJ Chairman Ruby Walsh said. “The Corinthian Challenge is our biggest annual fundraiser, and we salute all those who participate in it each year. I wish all the contenders the very best of luck in Leopardstown next weekend, I hope they enjoy every minute of it because they are all stars! The Challenge could not exist without the continued support of trainers, owners and stable staff of competing horses and the co-operation of participating racecourses and IHRB officials. We are really grateful to all these people.”
