GALWAY PLATE DAY - WEDNESDAY 29TH JULY

Day 3 of the Galway Races Summer Festival 2020

Thetote.com Galway Plate, one of the best days to come racing and witness a cracking historic race. Wednesday marks the third day of the Summer Festival which gets underway at 5:10pm with seven excellent races on the card sponsored by Tote Ireland. Thetote.com 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 www.thetote.com 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.
