Track Biography:

The Pigeon Hill Committee and the Carrigtwohill Committee amalgamated in 1958 to form the Pigeon Hill & Carrigtwohill point-to-point Committee.

They have organised a Point-to-Point in the Carrigtwohill area ever since. 2018 is the 60th Anniversary of this race meeting.

Traditionally race day has been an occasion when the people of the parish came out in large numbers to enjoy a day of fun and activity. 
Full details of all our special offers are on the Pigeon Hill and Carrigtwohill Point to Point Facebook Page.

The excellent condition and quality of the Ballyvodock track historically has attracted a large number of entries from owners and trainers from all over Ireland.

The course at Ballyvodock is now in its fourth year and this track has found favour with both owners/ trainers and with the public as it is a big galloping track with a marvellous natural viewing stand. They race for two and a half circuits of the course in an anti-clockwise direction.

Our free parking is located close to the finishing straight which allows race goers to get a close-up of the action from the comfort of their cars if they wish.

We also provide a disability parking area with fence viewing on the home straight.

In our bookmakers ring you can view and bet on any off-course races on the day in both England and Ireland.
 

The course will have a tent with soup and sandwiches for sale which are prepared by some of our committee members.

We also have an outside catering vendor which has a variety of catering options for sale from burgers and baps to chips.

Each year we also have an ice cream van in attendance.
 

Race goers can avail of the wide variety on offer.

There will be teas and coffees available from our hard working volunteers in our catering tent.

We would also recommend sampling some of our home-made soup.  The perfect 'warmer upper' between races.

Whilst our outside caterer will have a range of minerals on offer.

Something to suit all members of the family.

No, we do not have an official dress code we just advise our race goers to wear warm clothing and wellies.
Dogs are very welcome, but need to be kept on a lead at all times.
Yes, we welcome visitors to bring their own picnics as they are an integral part of the point-to-point experience.
At our point-to-point, we have a bouncing castle and face painting in the marquee for our younger race goers.
No we do not provide an ATM so we recommend that you make a stop in the nearby town of Carrigtwohill on your way to the races.

Traditionally race days have been an occasion when the people of the parish came out in large numbers to enjoy a day of fun and activity.

To mark the 60th milestone this year’s meeting has been designated as a Family Fun Day with special emphasis on entertaining the young in a safe enclosed children’s play area with a Bouncing Castle and Face Painting in the Marquee and other entertainment while the adults enjoy the races and maybe back a winner with the Bookies.

MONGOL EMPEROR finished a decent second to Anglers Crag at Ballindenisk back at the start of the month and could easily go one place better here for the Andrew Slattery team. Mount Oscar represents one of two entries for Colin Bowe in this contest and without a doubt will have his supporters on the day. There are a number of newcomers entered and any market moves could be worth following.

Preview

The Marie Harding-trained ROSA GLORIOSA improved vastly on her debut run on her latest effort in Kinsale back in June where she was just touched off by Presenting Ana, and she is bound to be involved at the business end here. Sam Curling is doubly represented in this contest, but his daughter of Westerner, Western Fiona, ran with plenty of credit when finishing fourth three weeks ago in Ballindenisk. Springfield Lodge will also have his supporters for the Eoghan O Grady yard, whilst Shellbeback and Slideaway are others to note.

TEMPLEBREDIN has been a model of consistency this season to date, and certainly looks the one to beat on paper in this contest. Ciaran Fennessy could send out his first runner as a handler with his mare, Superefficient, whose form had been quite consistent before she went to England. Top Question was last seen finishing a remote sixth in a Cork hunters chase, and perhaps a step back in class could see him get involved. Terence O'Briens, whilst Glencarrig Lad had not been seen since 2016, prior to his recent Ballindenisk run where he finished fifth. He is bound to have stripped fitter for that effort, and it would be of no surprise to see an improvement.

GET SUPREME represents handler Daniel Murphy and was just touched off recently in Carrigarostig by what was just a short head. Rwegoinhigh has been relatively consistent of late, and although he will have to improve on his last run in Dromahane, it would be no surprise to see him feature in what may prove to be the perfect opportunity for this gelding. Shellbeback has also been quite consistent of late, being placed on many occasions without managing to get her head in front. Her last two efforts in confined class have been decent, where she has finished second on both of those, before then finishing third at Kinsale.

Preview

SHUIL LUAS was very impressive in a mares winner-of-two back in December at Ballindenisk. Since then, she was beaten just 13 lengths by Mt Leinster Gold on her latest start in Carrigarostig, and that may just be good enough for the daughter of Brian Boru to get her head back in front. Supereffecient also holds an entry in this contest for Ciaran Fennessy. Sovereign Gold was a winner on her last start at Aghabullogue for Damian Murphy and she could feature here once again, whilst The Forge Hill was also a winner on her last start for the Sean Doyle team at Knockmullen House back in November, and there is no reason why she could not get involved once again.

ONE FOR THE YARD finished second on his last start in Aghabullogue to Entre Deux, and should have every chance of going one spot better for the Ellen Doyle yard this time around. Rwegoinhigh also holds an entry in this contest, whilst Etoile Du Matin has been consistent, finishing fourth on his only two starts to date. Glendruid finished a decent third to Lesser at Ballycrystal on his latest start, and a similar effort should see him involved in this contest.
