Owners Guide 

Whether you are having your first ever runner or have been involved in racing for a many a year, we aim ensure that all owners have an enjoyable experience at Navan.

Going Report

From entry stage up to the day of racing we supply a going report on our website and social media channels. Updates are also available from our racecourse team on +353 46 90 21350.


Navan is a left-handed oval travel of one mile and four furlongs with a stiff uphill climb to the finish line from the two furlong pole. There are seven hurdles and nine steeplechase fences on the loop. The home straight is three and a half furlongs in length.

Racing Surface

Throughout the year our experienced team works extremely hard to provide the best surface possible at all times. We try to provide fresh hurdle ground on the inner rail side as much as possible and we have invested in a high-end watering system to help maintain the track during the flat season.

Travelling From Overseas

Horses travelling from overseas have use of our secure overnight stables. While your horse is staying at Navan, we will make sure that he/she receives the best equine care available. We will also assist in booking accommodation for grooms travelling with your horse.

On A Raceday

Please ensure that you bring your Association of Irish Racecourse (AIR) badge with you on a raceday. Once you present this card at the AIR turnstile, you will receive complimentary admission, a racecard and a lunch voucher. You can enjoy a two course lunch with tea and coffee in the Owners and Trainers area of the Arkle Pavilion which has a wonderful view over the parade ring and track.

A member of our team takes care of all winning connections and organises a copy of your race for you to take home with your trophy.

Owners & Trainers Lounge

The owners and Trainers lounge is located on the first floor of the Arkle Pavilion overlooking the parade ring. Our owner liaison, Eddie Moran, will be present throughout the day to assist with lunch sittings held for 30 minutes per owner. Alternatively, an exclusive 25% discount on our 4-course Bective Package, with a table for the day, is available to the core owner group with a runner. Please speak to Eddie who can check availability on the day for you. 

Winning Connections

All wining connections are welcome into the winners enclosure post- race for photographs and the presentation. Make sure to bring any guests in for the photographs - the more the merrier. Post- race celebrations can begin when all will be invited  into the winning connections room to enjoy celebratory refreshments while re-watching the race. Along with the trophy, the winning photograph (by post) and race replay (by email) will be issued over the coming days.
