Dublin Racing Festival was back with a bang in 2022. A massive crowd of almost 25,000 fans flocked to Leopardstown, in the heart of Ireland’s capital city, to enjoy top-class racing as well as live entertainment and delicious food.
All of the best horses, trainers and jockeys were competing over the weekend, with eight Grade One races and over €2 million Euro in prize-money on offer. Undoubtedly, the highlight of the weekend was the rapturous applause from the packed Leopardstown grandstand as, one of Irish sport’s definitive double acts, Rachael Blackmore and Honeysuckle stormed home to win the Chanelle Pharma Irish Champion Hurdle for the third time.
