RACE to Success!

The RACE Academy is celebrating 35 years of success this year. To mark the occasion, there will be a special themed race day on the Curragh on August 10th. All RACE graduates will be invited to this reunion. The main feature will be the running of the inaugural Derek O'Sullivan Memorial Apprentice Handicap to celebrate the life of the late RACE Director.

RACE is the Racing Academy & Centre Of Education, an academy for the horse racing industry and an international centre of excellence. Over 630 trainee jockeys have graduated from RACE since they opened in 1973. For more information go to
