*HB family called the Atty Family (no Family Table number), named for a 1906 bay colt by Bushey Park, a winner of six races in England, including the Lewes Handicap, a prize-winning stallion at the London Show of 1913, sent to Germany as a stallion in 1913. The family, whose earliest known mare was Penelope, 1851, by Blackfoot, bred in Ireland, included many Irish steeplechase, hurdle and King's Plate winners.

The oldest continuously run race in Ireland. Since 1998 a Group II race; 1973 - 1997 Group III race. For some years, limited to mares and horses, geldings excluded periodically.

Established in 1821 at the instigation of the visit of King George IV at the Curragh, who presented a gold-handled whip "for the owner of the best horse in Ireland weight for age," plus a 100 guineas annual stake, to the stewards of the Irish Turf Club. First run October, 1821, and restricted, until 1831, to horses age four and upwards. In the 19th century racing calendars, considered one of the Royal Plates. Replaced by a new whip provided by King William IV in 1830. Restricted to Irish-bred horses after the 1860s, when English-breds began invading the Irish turf, a restriction since abandoned.

In 1925 the distance was reduced to 2-1/2 miles; the original value of the race, 100 guineas, established almost 100 years earlier, was still awarded, while the value Ireland's other major races had risen considerably. In 1936 the distance was again reduced, to 2 miles. In 1954 reduced to 1-1/2 miles (1 mile-4 furlongs), and the value of the purse increased to almost £600, its first ever increase in value, after which the value steadily rose. In 1995 the race was again shortened, to its present distance of 1-1/4 miles (1 mile-2 furlongs).
