Principle Races


 アイルランド障害競馬は大枠ではイギリス障害競馬と同様のシステムを用いています。Bumper / Hurdle / Steeplechaseの3つのカテゴリーが存在し、Hurdle / SteeplechaseにおいてはNoviceクラスが存在します。さらに、これらは2マイル (16f)、2マイル4ハロン (20f)、3マイル戦 (24f)に大別されます。そのほかに牝馬限定戦、Juvenile Hurdle路線(3歳or4歳限定戦)も存在します。日程は変動する可能性がありますのでご注意ください。なお、イギリスと異なり、シーズンオフの夏でも比較的多くのレースが開催されているようです。赤字は主要レースを示し、下線の引かれているものは2016-17シーズンのレース映像へのリンクです。

 主要開催としては、4月の末にPunchestown競馬場で行われるPunchestown Festivalがアイルランド障害競馬の祭典となっています。
