TATTERSALLS IRISH 2000 GUINEAS (GROUP 1)

The Irish 2,000 Guineas is the first Irish Classic of the flat season. It is run over one mile and is confined to three-year-old thoroughbred colts and fillies only.

WEATHERBYS IRELAND GREENLANDS STAKES (GROUP 2)

One of the three most prestigious sprints in the Irish racing calendar, the Greenlands Stakes takes its name from the area of the Curragh plain where the racecourse is located.  In 2015 the race was upgraded to Group 2 level and restricted to horses aged four or older as part of a significant reshaping of the Irish sprinting programme. 
In recent years Slade Power (2014) and Merchant Navy (2018) have won this race before going to land the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. College Chapel completed the same double as a three-year-olds in 1993 while the 2000 winner Namid went on to win that year’s Prix de l’Abbaye.


GAIN MARBLE HILL STAKES (GROUP 3)
The Marble Hill Stakes is a Group 3 flat race in Ireland open to Thoroughbreds aged two years only. It was run at the Curragh over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres).
The race has been run since 1967  It was run over 5 furlongs prior to 2017. It was run as a Group 3 race in 2020 for the first time.  It took place at Cork in 2020 due to rescheduling of races due to Covid 19.
