Dubai Duty Free, title sponsor of the “Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby” now on its eleventh year, is one of Ireland's greatest international race weekend of the year, with the world's finest Thoroughbreds competing for one of the ultimate prizes in the Irish sport.

 

The world’s leading airport retailer sponsored six of the eight races on the card including the flagship race. This three-day racing festival promises a spectacle of fashion, entertainment, music and the finest racing. It is unrivalled in its prestige and tradition and is most definitely the social occasion of the year.

 

Other events which ran on and off the track includes a Golf Classic which will be held at the Palmer Ryder Cup course at The K Club and the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Ball, also held at The K Club which will feature an auction to raise funds for a chosen charity.

 

Last year the prize money was increased to an eye-watering €1.5 million, further reinforcing the fact that this is an event that Dubai Duty Free are supremely committed to by investing time, energy and money into Ireland’s oldest annual sporting spectacle.
