As a continued supporter of the Irish bloodstock sector, KPMG are delighted to be involved in the Longines Irish Champions Weekend via our sponsorship of the 2018 KPMG Champions Juvenile Stakes.
The KPMG Champions Juvenile Stakes is run over 1 mile and is worth €150,000. The KPMG Champions Juvenile Stakes has been upgraded from 2017 to Group 2 status due to its excellent history of producing top class racehorses. Previous winners include Epsom and Irish Derby winner Australia and Criterium International winner Johannes Vermeer.
The winner of this Champion Juvenile is eligible for a place in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile races.
The Longines Irish Champions Weekend is a spectacular two-day event, featuring ten Group races including Five Group 1 races run at two legendary Irish racecourses, Leopardstown and The Curragh. Showcasing the best horses, the best jockeys and the best trainers in the world, prize money at this event exceeds €4.6 million - making it one of the richest and most glamorous meetings on the international racing calendar.
Both days, hosted at two different racecourses have individual personalities; Leopardstown - a green oasis of 226 acres in the suburbs of Ireland’s capital and The Curragh set amidst beautiful countryside south west of Dublin. We hope to see you at what promises to be an exceptional weekend of racing.
