When is the 2023 Irish Grand National?


Fairyhouse Racecourse is gearing up to stage Ireland’s richest National hunt race, the Irish Grand National.

The Irish Grand National is the feature contest in the three-day Easter festival at Fairyhouse. The total prize pot for the race is a cool €500,000 with the winner bagging connections a tidy €270,000. Runners will need to have staying power for the 3m 5f race while slick jumping technique is certainly an advantage here with 22 fences to negotiate along the way.

Some of racing’s biggest names are on the honours list for the Irish Grand National, including the likes of Desert Orchid and Arkle, while the last runner to achieve the Irish/Aintree double was Numbersixvalverde in 2006.

Lord Lariat won the Irish Grand National in 2022, however given that he will be aiming for the Aintree showpiece this time around, the likelihood is that he won’t appear at the County Meath track next month.
