Let's start the celebration!

Day Three: St Patrick's Day

Join in the fun for the best St Patrick’s atmosphere this side of the Irish Sea.

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day on the third day of The Festival. They’ll be plenty of Guinness available, Irish music to lift the spirits and all the action on the course, including the two big races the The Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle and the Ryanair Chase.

In 2016 Thistlecrack justified banker status as he bounded away from Irish challenger Alpha Des Obeaux to take the The Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle in breath-taking fashion and confirmed his total domination of the staying hurdle division.

Feature race: Stayers' Hurdle

In addition to the racing, there will be plenty of Irish-style entertainment, as the party is in full swing Festival fashion.
