Navan Racecourse is a dual-purpose track located 50km north-east of Dublin. First opened in 1920, it now plays host to a total of 17 fixtures throughout the year.
Navan boasts a strong National Hunt programme that includes a multitude of Grade 2 contests such as the Boyne Hurdle, the Lismullen Hurdle, the Fortria Chase, the Monksfield Novice Hurdle and the Navan Novice Hurdle. Widely considered one of the fairest tests of a National Hunt horse in Ireland, Navan has played host to an array of previous and future Grade 1 winners over the decades.
On the Flat, the Group 3 Vintage Crop Stakes in May is the centrepiece and it has developed into one of the leading Ascot Gold Cup trials in Ireland. Previous winners include Yeats (twice), Fame And Glory (twice), Leading Light and Forgotten Rules.
