Naas Celebrates Centenary with Free Race Day

The founding fathers of Naas at the course's first meeting in 1924

Naas Racecourse will stage a free race day on Sunday, May 19 to mark the course's centenary.

The eight-race card features some Royal Ascot trials, including the G3 Goffs Lacken S. and the G3 Coolmore Stud EBF Fillies Sprint S.

With a nod to the course's illustrious past, amateur dramatic groups from around the country will be in attendance on the day, stepping back in time to embrace the glamour of the 1920s by showcasing vintage attire reminiscent of the era. Racegoers are encouraged to do the same, and the person who sports the best 1920s-inspired outfit on the day will win a VIP day at Naas races along with an overnight stay and dinner at Lawlor's of Naas Hotel.

Dermot Cantillon, chairman of Naas Racecourse, said, “We are incredibly proud to reach this significant milestone in our history. Our Centenary Celebration Raceday is a tribute to the rich heritage and tradition of Naas Racecourse, and we look forward to welcoming racegoers for free on the day to share in the festivities.”
