Racing from March to November, Wexford Racecourse is best known for its popular Friday evening meetings during the summer months. In May 2016, Wexford became an National Hunt-only racecourse a year after switching from being a right-handed to a left-handed course. The venue continues to attract large and competitive fields of runners. Wexford racecourse has been widened and realigned in recent years making the venue more attractive for owners, trainers and jockeys. Wexford Racecourse is located on the outskirts of the Wexford town, close to all major roadways.
