Irish Champions Weekend 2022 Schedule

Irish Champions Weekend Day One

The card on day one at Leopardstown opens with a bang, as the finest fillies and mares in Ireland do-battle in the Matron Stakes. Next up is the Champions Juvenile Stakes, a Group Two which often produces a contender for the following year's 2000 Guineas.

Many of Ireland's best horses will clash over ten furlongs in the Irish Champions Stakes. Several classy horses will lock horns in the Group Two Boomerang Stakes, before we move into the grueling, 13-furlong Petingo Handicap. Day one then closes with the Sovereign Path Premier Handicap. 

Irish Champions Weekend Day Two

Sunday's action at the Curragh begins with the Bold Lad Handicap Sprint. The Group Two Blandford Stakes is up next, before many of the fastest horses in the sport fight it out in the Flying Five Stakes.

Two-year-olds will then get the chance to thrust themselves into the picture for next year's Classics. First up is the Moyglare Stud Stakes for fillies, before we move into the Vincent O'Brien National Stakes.

The Irish St Leger then brings the curtain down on 2021 Irish Champions Weekend in spectacular fashion.
