Horses for Courses guides readers through a typical year in Irish racing and highlights the individuality of each venue, from Leopardstown and The Curragh to Gowran Park and Clonmel.  All have their own special qualities and atmosphere but share two common traits: a warm welcome and good sport.  And that is what the author believes Irish racing is all about.

The country’s courses enjoy a huge level of support from the local population.  It might be raining and some of the races may be ‘ordinary’ but the stands will always be crowded.  That is because racing is part of Irish culture and the nation’s way of life: with 27 courses, it has proportionately far more venues than Great Britain.

Meticulously researched and passionately written, Horses for Courses is the definitive guide to Ireland’s racecourses and is essential reading for horse-racing enthusiasts everywhere.
