Kilbeggan Maintains Ten Fixture Schedule For 2022

Horse Racing Ireland have announced the dates for next season.

Horse Racing Ireland have this afternoon announced the provisional calendar for the 2022 season. 

Kilbeggan will maintain its ten race-days allocated this year. 

The newly upgraded Grade B Axa Midlands National will take place presumedly at the July 8th fixture. 

The season will begin with a two day festival in April and close on Friday September 2nd. 

Jason Morris, HRI’s Director of Racing, said:

“We continue to see strong growth in our horse population numbers (up 19% year-on-year) and average field size figures (up from 11.8 to 12.3 runners per race), and this is reflected in the increased fixture list that we are announcing for 2022. By retaining three meetings to be allocated at short notice during next year, we can retain flexibility to respond quickly to the demands of the horse population as they materialise in 2022.”

Fixture list in full: 

April: Thursday/Friday 21/22nd (both evening)

May: Friday 13th

June: Monday 13th

July: Friday 8/15th 

August: Saturday 6th & Friday 19th. 

September: Friday 2nd.
