The Guinness Galway Hurdle & Stylish Ladies Day

Thursday 3rd August, Day 4 of the Galway Races Summer Festival 2023.

Widely renowned as ‘Ladies Day’ at the Galway Races Summer Festival, Thursday combines the very best in horse racing and stunning fashion.  This year we have €13,000 cash bonanza on offer for our Best Dressed Lady Competition, generously sponsored by The Connacht hospitality Group. The first of eight national hunt races takes place at 2.10pm. Thursday features the much sought after Galway Hurdle Handicap race with an impressive prize fund of €250,000 on offer. One of the biggest days in the Irish Racing calendar, this event is also an unmissable day out for fashion lovers.
