Listowel Races live on TG4

The Listowel Races will be live on TG4 for the annual Harvest Racing Festival. The race meeting will be held behind closed doors this year but TG4 will be there to bring you all of the action from Co.Kerry. We will be live from the racecourse from Monday the 21st to Saturday the 26th of September for what is the 162nd edition of the races. We will be covering the racing across 6 days this year with an on-air time of 3pm each day. Race 3 will be our first live race every day and we will stay with all the action in Listowel until after the last race has been run across the 6 days of broadcast.

The year will be the 16th year of TG4’s coverage of the famous racing festival in Listowel.

Last year was a brilliant year at the festival with some great weather and huge numbers from both home and abroad through the turnstiles.

The big race of the week, The Guinness Kerry National, was won last year by Henry de Bromhead’s ‘Poker Party’ which was ridden by Rachel Blackmore. Rachel became the 4th female winner of the race in the last 6 years after previous wins for Katie Walsh in 2014 (Your Busy) and Lisa O’Neill in both 2016 (Wrath of Titans) and 2017 (Potter’s Point).

For 2020 the Guinness Kerry National Handicap Steeplechase is run on Wednesday the 23rd of September at 4:30pm with a prize fund of €150,000.

Our programme will be hosted again by Seán Bán Breathnach with Mánus Ó Conghaile. Race commentary comes from Mícheál Ó Sé and our reporter will be Daragh Ó Conchúir.
