Track Biography:

The Wexford foxhounds was formed in 1810 at Slevoy castle.

Our point-to-point has been in different locations over the years including Wexford racecourse, Gowran Park and Lingstown before being moved to its current location at Moorefields in November 2011. We run two meetings a year, one in November and one in February.

Set in the heart of Co. Wexford the course is left handed with a circuit of one mile and three fences in the home straight providing many exciting close finishes.

It is a very fair track of two long straights with two gentle left-handed bends, there are five fences on each circuit which measures a mile a lap.

The track had produced many top class individuals including the likes of Know The Score who won his four-year-old maiden in 2017 and was sold five days later at the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales for £380,000.
