The Irish 1000 Guineas is a Group 1 race run under Set Weight conditions for three year old fillies at the Curragh conducted by the Curragh Racecourse for Horse Racing Ireland.
The Irish 1000 Guineas is run over the mile. It was first run in 1922 and was won by Lady Violette.
It is the second of the fillies only Guineas races, three weeks after the English version. They often pattern on to the Coronation Stakes.
The Irish 1000 Guineas is run on the round course.
