Saturday 26th March 2022

Saturday 26th March is the first race day of the 2022 flat season in Ireland.

The Paddy Power Irish Lincolnshire (Premier Handicap) is the first big handicap of the flat season in Ireland open to horses aged four years or older. It is run over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres). The prize money for  the race is €90,000. 2022 marks the 81st running of the Paddy Power Irish Lincolnshire.

The Madrid Handicap was first run in 1813 when Luxima landed one of the most historic races in the Irish racing calendar.  Previous winners include subsequent Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Star Appeal in 1973 and Awtaad who landed the race for Curragh based trainer Kevin Prendergast in 1916.
