Track Biography:

Established in 1942 the Dungarvan Farmers point-to-point still operates on its original site at Kilossera, just two kilometres outside of Dungarvan town centre.

The prime agricultural land beneath “the hill” creates a wonderful natural amphitheatre for one of the South East’s oldest and most famous point-to-points.

Run across the Curran, Sheehan and Kiely lands for generations, the Kilossera point-to-point has a strong tradition of future stars coming to the fore. Previous luminaries include Grand National winner Monty’s Pass, Lexus Chase winner Pandorama, and RSA Chase winner Jessies Dream.

Kilossera has also been a happy hunting ground for young jockeys such as Ted Walsh, Adrian Maguire and Davy Russell having ridden winners here during their careers.

How To Get There

By Road

From Dungarvan take the N25 Waterford-Cork road in the direction of Cork. The point-to-point will be located at Kilossera, the second right turn after Déise Vets. The point-to-point will be well signposted on the route.

Dungarvan is well serviced by regular buses from Waterford, Cork and Dublin. Taxis are available outside the Lady Belle pub in Dungarvan town centre and a trip to the point-to-point will cost around €7.

By Air

Our point-to-point is located 50 minutes from Cork airport and 2 hours from Dublin airport.
 

Our parade ring provides a ringside view of the horses. Due to Dungarvan’s large attendances and competitive racing the bookmakers ring is a vibrant and competitive one, with 15 bookmakers setting up stalls in 2016 and reporting a roaring trade.

Along with having a number of portaloos located around the track, we have changing facilities for babies.

We also have a wide flat expanse at the finish line that is perfectly suited to wheelchair users.
 

There are a wide range of food options avaiable, something to suit everyone.

We have the usual hot food options with delicious burgers, chips and fish on offer from our outside catering vendor.

This is complemented by wonderful artisan food offering gourmet cakes from the Village baker in Villierstown.

Race goers can purchase teas, coffees and soft drinks from our outside catering outlet.

For those looking for something a little special we also have an artisan coffee stall synonymous with Dungarvan’s famous farmers market.

No, we do not have an official dress code we just advise our race goers to dress for the weather as appropriate.
Yes, we allow dogs to attend the point-to-point. However, we do ask that all dogs are kept on a lead at all times.
Yes, we welcome visitors to bring their own picnics as our parking inside the centre of the course offers the perfect location for a picnic. We also have a range of catering options on course if you fancy picking-up something tasty on the go.
Yes we provide bouncy castles and pony rides to keep our younger racegoers entertained.
No unfortunately we do not provide an ATM but the service station at the closest roundabout to Dungarvan is located 1km from the track.

The Kilossera point-to-point is famous for the view from the hill overlooking the course. The hill provides a wonderful vantage point for every race and below you lies all that the Kilossera point-to-point has to offer.

On the day we provide bouncy castles and pony rides to keep our younger racegoers entertained.

Our point-to-point is located only five minutes away from the coastal town of Dungarvan which has an abundance of pubs and restaurants as well as plenty of popular tourist attractions such as the Waterford Greenway, Dungarvan Castle and the nearby Ardmore adventures.

WHERES BUNNY has had the misfortune of parting company with her rider in each of her two outings to date, including most recently when coming down late at Borris House when destined to make the frame in an effort which would leave her as a leading contender for this. Fashion Nova would have finished behind her at Borris so has to turn the tables with her on that run, whilst Lady KK, Idsayso and Annie Day complete the other dangers.

IL COURRA stayed on strongly when coming from off the pace to finish third at Lingstown on his debut in November and it may not take much further improvement to get his head in front here. Erne River has yet to finish out of the placings following two encouraging efforts already this season, whilst runner-up Minella Drama, and Fix The Bill, a horse that finished second in a P2P Bumper at Barbury, are others for the shortlist.

SHANAVOUN LADY brings the strongest form into this contest, courtesy of her fine second at Borris House before Christmas, a race which received a timely form boost when the fifth ran out a wide-margin winner at Ballycrystal just last Sunday. Rosy Story could well be her big danger as she has made the frame in each of her three outings this season, to ensure she would not be a surprise winner of this, whilst Messenger Girl is another to have run respectably in the past.

Preview

COMERAGH LAD, who is also entered in the concluding race on this card, brings the strongest recent form into this on account of the big improvement he displayed when chasing home Mr Bercow at Ballindenisk earlier in the month. Of the others, Champions Hill got within seven lengths in a four-year-old maiden at Dromahane on his debut, and whilst not repeating that since, he did offer promise at Kinsale in November to ensure he enters the mix.

CHAPTER TWO has been contesting some top class open races of late, and now back against her own sex, she could gain her first success since winning over hurdles at Cork in May 2018. Rosfoyle, an early casualty at Clonmel recently, had finished behind Chapter Two at Lisronagh in the Autumn, and so has form to overturn with the selection, whilst Gabrielleamee and Dubai Daisy have solid hopes.

ONE MORE LIFE features in older maiden company for the first time in his career, and it should provide him with the opportunity to gain a deserved success following two previous placed efforts. One For The Yard was only reeled in late at Aghabullogue and is a big danger, alongside Comeragh Lad who took a big step forward at Ballindenisk earlier this month.
