I was in Ashbourne the other day and came upon this very nice statue of the famous racehorse Arkle just in front of a few shops. It's hard to rate it, a perfectly nice statue but pretty underwhelming and it hardly counts as an attraction...More

A monument to a famous race horse, which is then a monument to gambling as the two are linked and one would not be popular without the other. I live locally and it was erected during one of the worst downturns this country's ever seen....More

Ashbourne is the home of most famous racehorse of all time and Arkle is rightly recognised with a magnificent bronze statue with Pat Taaffe on board. It's a wonderful Memorial sitting on a majestic plinth

The arkle statue is in the middle of the town. It is thought of very highly and is an important part of Ashbourne's history. A must see.
