The Irish Grand National is a race at the very heart of Irish horse racing and it remains the richest jumps race in Ireland with a prize of €500,000. The last renewal of the famous race took place on 18th April 2022 and this was won by 40/1 shot Lord Lariat, trained by Dermot McLoughlin and ridden by jockey Paddy O’Hanlon. This was the second successive win in this race for the trainer and it came on the back of the biggest shock in the history of the contest when Freewheelin Dylan romped home to victory at a cool 150/1.
The race takes place on Easter Monday over a distance of 3 miles and 5 furlongs and along its length there are 24 fences to be overcome. The steeplechase is open to horses aged five years or more and takes place during the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse Racecourse.
The first Irish Grand National took place in 1870 and during the first few years the winners were generally trained at the Curragh. The race attracts thousands of racegoers from Dublin and several of the victors have gone on to win the Aintree Grand National in subsequent years. None have won both contests in the same year however.
The most successful runner in the history of the Irish Grand National was Brown Lad who won three times in the 1970s.
