Irish racing to resume on 8 June at Naas with its Classics quick to follow

  • 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on 12-13 June
  • Irish Derby at end of month, close to Epsom equivalent

Irish racing will resume at Naas on 8 June while the Irish 2,000 Guineas and 1,000 Guineas, the country’s first Classics in 2020, will be staged at The Curragh on 12-13 June, Horse Racing Ireland said on Sunday. The Irish Derby, meanwhile, will remain in its traditional slot on the last weekend in June, leaving little chance that horses will be able to line up for both the Irish Derby and the Derby at Epsom, which is provisionally scheduled for 4 July.
