Down Royal General Manager Mike Todd says the Festival of Racing, to be held on 4 and 5 November, is the "pinnacle of the year" for the racecourse.
The two-day meeting features the Grade One James Nicholson Champion Chase, which counts Kauto Star and Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Don Cossack among its former winners.
"This is our opportunity to have the best trainers, horses and the best jockeys in the sport of national hunt racing in Northern Ireland at Down Royal," said Todd.
