Naas racecourse will stage the return of horse racing on June 8th  

Racing has been suspended since 24 March because of the coronavirus pandemic. As the easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures is being accelerated and numbers contracting the coronavirus continue to relent, Horse Racing Ireland and the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board revealed the fixtures for June after a board meeting was held earlier this month.

The Irish 2000 and 1000 Guineas will take place at the Curragh in the first week of action.

National Hunt racing resumes at Limerick on June 22 while the Irish Derby retains its traditional date on Saturday, June 27, as does the Irish Oaks on Saturday, July 18.

Irish Champions Weekend will take place at Leopardstown/Curragh across the weekend of 12/13 September.

For the first three weeks, racing will be restricted to nine racecourses which are more centrally located to minimise travel distances. Cork racecourse will not be among those used in June when it will continue to serve an important role as an HSE Test Centre for Covid-19.

Of course, you will find horse racing predictions every day, on every meeting here at BetAndSkill, including of course Naas racing tips.

Social distancing, no racecourse saunas, 48-hour declaration and many other safety measures will be introduced for all Irish races in June.

Irish Racing Prize Money Reduction   

Arising from the financial situation the industry finds itself in, a reduction in prize money will take immediate effect for June. Also entries fees for all races will be reduced in line with prize money reductions.

Irish Derby and the Irish Champion Stakes will be both cut to €750,000 (by 50% and 40% from €1.5m and €1.25m respectively). The 1000 and 2000 Guineas will both be worth €250,000.

Significant reductions are expected for all other Group 1 races throughout the year.
