Nine-time Irish champion jockey Pat Smullen will be forever associated with the Curragh Racecourse, not only for his outstanding riding ability and prolific career on the track but also for the incredible awareness campaign and fund-raising drive over Longines Irish Champions Weekend in 2019, which culminated in the Pat Smullen Champions Race for Cancer Trials Ireland.

On the track, racegoers are promised a high-class card including the Paddy Power Supporting Cancer Trials Irish Cambridgeshire, Snow Fairy Stakes, Heider Family Stables Round Tower Stakes and Newtown Anner Stud Stakes. In addition to racing, there will be meet and greet zone for racing fans to meet the jockeys, free children’s entertainment, live music, and a delicious BBQ ensuring a great day out for all the family.

This special race day will also include a charity lunch and auction in aid of Cancer Trials Ireland featuring some outstanding items such as the original silks worn by Rachael Blackmore to win the 2022 Cheltenham Champion Hurdle and Gold Cup, a Cashel Palace racing royalty package, a racehorse ownership experience with Joseph O’Brien, Pat Smullen’s 2019 Champions Race memorabilia signed by all the jockeys who rode in the famous race and a VIP race and stay in Barberstown Castle.
