The Tote Galway Plate Day, one of the best days to enjoy some superb national hunt racing and witness a cracking historic race. Wednesday 27th July marks the third day of the Galway Races Summer Festival 2022 with the first race off at 5.10pm. The Tote Galway Plate race has been running at Ballybrit since 1869 with more heritage and prestige than any other race run at Galway Racecourse.
The longstanding Tote Galway Plate is run over a distance of 2 miles 6 furlongs 111 yds with a round of fourteen fences to jump in total. The last two fences, situated three furlongs from the finish, are the closest fences together of any racecourse in the world.
Regarded as Ireland’s largest horse racing festival, the iconic Galway Races boasts superb horse racing, hospitality, entertainment with Live Bands and DJ’s daily, stunning fashion and an electric atmosphere that continues to draw people from Ireland and abroad to experience the sheer magic and infectious fun atmosphere that we are famous for!
The racecourse offers a wide variety of hospitality experiences. From panoramic views over looking the race track, to more casual fun group packages, we can offer you a variety of experiences, be it with friends or colleagues. Our all- inclusive ‘Festival Package’ at €35 per person is ideal and very popular for large groups [minimum booking of 10 people applies for group packages]. We look forward to welcoming you and your friends. See you in Ballybrit!
