Track Biography:

Clonakilty’s annual Point-to-Point races are held on historic Inchydoney Island on the lands of Leslie & Emily Beamish who kindly provide us with this fabulous venue.  Having started as a millennium project, the Clonakilty Point-to-Point meeting has grown beyond all expectations and is now regarded as one of the most outstanding meetings of its kind in Munster.

Since moving to our present location on Inchydoney Island, we have attracted even larger crowds from both near and far, which has helped even further in presenting Clonakilty as a wonderful place to visit and stay. This event is not only for horse enthusiasts, but has also proven to be a great family day out over the years.

We are very lucky to have a large committee of hard working volunteer racing enthusiasts, with each member being more dedicated than the next, under the stewardship of the Clerk of the Course.

Our Committee at Clonakilty Point to Point like to recognise and celebrate some unique achievements.  In the past we have done well with “Imperial Call”, “Newmill”,” Why So Mayo” and “Sir Frederick”.  We have also had a horse called “On the Fringe” which was bred locally by Pat Tobin who has created an incredible record by winning the Hunter Chases at Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown in 2015, repeating first again in 2016.  Horses rarely win at these three meetings, but his mother (Love & Porter) was sired by “Sheer Grit” and this fellow certainly has that.

AHEAD OF SCHEDULE bounced back from a disappointing run at Oldcastle when a very respectable third in a competitive Loughanmore maiden just last Sunday. With plenty of form behind him, he sets a very solid benchmark. Pasvolsky was beaten by less than four lengths on his debut at Necarne and hails from another yard that is very much in form at present, whilst stablemates All The Fame and Law School may not be without hope following their respective debuts.

USURPER got no further than the first fence at Loughanmore last Saturday and could be turned out quickly in search of compensation here. The Colin Bowe-trained son of Fame And Glory was a real eye-catcher at Oldcastle over Easter on his debut and will look to follow that up here. Into The Woods posted a career best at Bartlemy last time out which is encouraging, whilst Red Vita improved upon his Liscarroll debut when second at Dromahane last month.

PREMIER DTroice made his first competitive appearance for nine months a winning one when staying on strongly in the closing stages to get off the mark at Loughrea just seven days ago. This could be a good opportunity for him to quickly double up. Tramore Hunter Chase runner-up Super Citizen could be the big danger having steeped up from his Dawstown success, whilst Rivers End made his first appearance for the Colin Bowe yard a winning one when getting his head in front at Necarne.

Colin Bowe has enjoyed particular success within the mares division this season and his hold four possible entries in this, of which BALLINAMONA FLYER offers the strongest form having finished third against geldings at Stowlin recently and could be seen to good effect here back against her own sex. Newcomers Mammoth, African Glory and Stowaway Symphony all hail from respected yard and would therefore enter the equation, whilst Honest To Goodness has served her connections well and would not be winning out of turn.

Preview

VERMOUT FOUGERAY looked destined to win this race 12 months only to cruelly part company with his rider and handler at the final fence with victory within his grasp. Lightly raced since then, he improved signifcnatly for his re-appearance run last season, and should do so once again this year having finished tailed off at Dawstown earlier in the month. Bunninadden would have claims if at his best, Arch Chancellor ran with respect at Monksgrange last month, whilst So Winner is closely related to the 2005 Cheltenham Foxhunters winner Sleeping Night. He makes his debut for a yard that would rarely have runners in these races and is certainly worth a second look as a result.
