All members of stable staff attending the races must register to attend with the races by logging onto http://www.ihrb.ie/health-screening and following instructions.
All races offer a prize awarded to the groom who looks after the horse judged to be best turned out. In many races, the grooms in charge of the winning horse will also receive a prize.
For all Group 1 races grooms names are printed in the racecard.
Sponsors regularly gift of merchandise to the grooms of their races. This is frequently in the form of hats, jackets or gilets.
In 2020 The Curragh and TRM also provided additional prizes to the winning groom of the Best Turned Out prize for every race at the Curragh and each winner received free entry into an end of season draw. See some of our Best Turned Out winners during 2020.
