THE PUNCHESTOWN NATIONAL HUNT FESTIVAL 19 - 22 APRIL 2011 Punchestown is the home of Irish National Hunt racing and the Punchestown Festival is the highlight of the Irish sporting and social calendar. The Festival is considered the grande finale of the jump season with top class horses, trainers and jockeys from both sides of the Irish sea converging on the Kildare venue for a week of thrills and spills. Naas Naas is an historic town that in early times was the seat of the Kings of Leinster. It is the county town of County Kildare and has matured through the years to become one of Ireland's more cosmopolitan towns. The local thoroughbred industry produces the finest racehorses in the world and this has led, over the years, to the establishment of three major racecourses in the immediate area, Punchestown, The Curragh and Naas.

On Friday, the fourth day of the Festival, Solwhit, partnered by Davy Russell, just beat last year's winner, Nicky Henderson's Punjabi, to win the Grade 1 Rabobank Champion Hurdle by a short head.
