Jamie Codd, who is the second winning-most point-to-point rider in the history of the sport became the first modern day rider to ride all six winners on the one card at Tinahely in October 2011.

Previous track winners to have won at Tinahely include former Grade One winner Fundamentalist and Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up On His Own.

Combined with our free parking, we are lucky to have a clear viewing track that allows race goers to get up close to the action, often from the comfort of their car, should they wish to bring their own picnic for the family.

There are certain parts of the track that can be used to facilitate disabled parking so as to cater for every eager race goer.

The bookmakers ring is conveniently situated in close proximity to the parade. Check out all the runners before deciding where to place your hard earned cash!

In between races, spectators can avail of a variety of catering options provided.

Outside caterers provide tasty beef burgers, sausages, chips with tea, coffee and soft drinks on the day.

The venue lends itself very well to family picnics when the weather is favourable.

The onsite catering providers will provide range of hot and cold drinks.

As a result of the very strict drink driving laws a few years ago we decided to discontinue providing or selling alcohol. 

However people can bring their own and some wonderful and exotic beverages can be seen taken out of the back of cars and trucks. 

 

As warm as possible. High heels probably not advisable however it is lovely to see some people dressed up in their country tweeds.
Yes all dogs welcome once they are kept on a lead.
Of course. We just ask that no rubbish is left behind.
No, but because the children can get up close to the action we find they love watching the races.
No we do not provide an ATM so we recommend that you make a stop in Tinahely on your way to the races.

As a large number of the people attending our point-to-point are there purely for the races we try to concentrate solely on providing the best racing possible.

Over the years, after the last official race we have ran a very popular race confined to our hunting members riding their hunters.  We have not been in a position to run this for the last few years but hope to start doing so again.

THE MULCAIR is the only horse in here with previous experience having made his debut a fortnight ago over the shorter 2m4f trip at Oldtown. The Flemensfirth gelding went well for a long way and can be expected to improve upon his third in a quality contest won by a horse who was subsequently sold for 290,000 pounds sterling. Gigginstown House Stud bought last years winner Rapid Escape and they feature among the entries here with the well-bred Conflated, who is a half-brother to Arkle Chase-third Ordinary World.

HADMEATHELLO finished just behind recent Oldtown victor King Of The Sharks on his debut at Nenagh, and with that form having received a timely boost, he could be the one to side with here. Park Philosopher, who is out of a three-time track winner, offered plenty of promise with his opening effort at Templencarriga on New Years Eve. He can be expected to improve for the run, whilst Financial Outcome was running a big race around here in January before departing two-out, and whilst he did disappoint at Tyrella two weeks later, he is proven around this course and can bounce back.

MARINERO and Morning Assembly both go in search of last minute Cheltenham Foxhunters qualification here, and with alternative opportunities for both elsewhere this weekend, they will likely not have to take each other on. Whichever of the two does run here will be the warm favourite. Carrignagapple chased home Marinero around here last month before winning in good style at Ballinaboola, whilst Dantes King and Chapter are others with good form at this venue.

Preview

With little placed form on offer from those horses with previous experience to their name, the winner may well come from the newcomers who feature among the potential line-up. JASPER BEAR, who represents David Christie, is a half-sister to Audacious Plan who won the Durham National in November. Bred by Alistair Corrigan, whose colours were carried by the ill-fated hunter chaser You Must Know Me, she could put in a good performance on debut. Holy Motivation may be the pick of the previous runners.

It is very difficult to look passed LA CAVSA NOSTRA for this after his facile success at Oldtown earlier this month. He brushed aside some very capable rivals on that occasion and will be expected to do so once again here. Ajijic comes here in good form having won both of his last two starts and is a tough sort having got his head in front on consecutive weekends, whilst Thinkinginmysleep and Commanding Spirit are others for the shortlist.

COACH ROAD only found the subsequent Bellharbour winner Ajijic too good at Nenagh last month, and this could be an ideal opportunity to get off the mark. Kits Other Half, Laces Out and Premier King would all look very evenly matched on their run at Ballinaboola, and there may not be a deal to separate them here if they were to re-oppose.
