Track Biography:


**Please note that the fixture on September 20th will take place behind closed doors with no spectators permitted to attend due to Government restrictions associated with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.**



The Ballymacad hunting history dates back to 1730 and they have always strived to  every aspect they participate in be it hunting, running a hunter trials and Point-to-Point.

The original Ballymacad Point-to-Point meeting was held in Crossakiel was the most exciting event of the year when even the local school closed for the day. In a large field on the northern slope of the hill, tents were set up and a festival atmosphere was created with women would sell the race cards and trick-of-the-loop tables were set up. The start was in the next field and all that could be seen was the jockeys colours through the hedge until they suddenly appeared jumping the last fence where the whipper-in would gallop up and down to keep the crowds back off the track right up to the winning post! Some of the natural obstacles are still used by those out hunting to this day.

In 1977 the event moved to its current venue at Newcastle, Oldcastle which provides a great natural course with great viewing for spectators.

The 4 year old maiden race has provided a start for some very successful horses on the track including Our Vic and the most recent being the Willie Mullins trained Live Love Laugh. The very famous Flashing Steel owned by Charlie Haughey also had a win in Oldcastle.

With its white railing, the course and facilities create the feel of being at an actual race meeting. The Clerk of the Course has spent years perfecting the ground, to ensure the best underfoot conditions are on offer to owners, trainers and jockeys.

Preview

The Westerner gelding SLIEVEGAR was sent off as the favourite for his introduction back in the Spring at Tinahely, and whilst he was unable to converter that into a winning debut, it was a respectable effort. That leaves him as the standard bearer in this. Stable companions Tim Pat and Dorans Bridge have both also got among the placings, however they were beaten some way and will need to have improved.

A half-sister of the 140-rated chaser Merry King, CALL ME MERRY made a more than respectable debut when finishing fourth in a four-year-old mares maiden at Dromahane. She has not been seen in action since May 2019, however if primed for this, she may be have the edge. Cloneyhurke Maid has more recent form having finished fourth at Borris House back in March in what was a competitive hunt race, whilst Navy Girl is another open to improvement.

Preview

A close second on Good ground at Rathcannon in Spring 2019, MONTY GUIRY ran very respectively at Portrush in what proved to be a red-hot maiden won by subsequent bumper scorer Ballyadam. Although he has not been seen since, he has some strong form in the book and would look the likely standard bearer. Colin Bowe has a number of horses engaged here that were knocking on the door throughout last season such as Pay The Piper and Tommys Oscar who are not far from getting their heads in front, with Easter In Milan another that cannot be discounted.

LOWTOWN BOY got the better of three subsequent winners when getting off the mark at Kirkistown ten months ago and with that form behind him he would seem to set the benchmark in this. Dento Des Obeaux has been transformed since a change in tactics to allow him race from the front, and last seasons Kirkistown winner has switched yards since being seen chasing home the capable Double Smart at Tyrella.

DIEGOS WAY let down his supporters at Punchestown in February when sent off as an odds-on favourite. He had looked set to open his account at Knockmullen House earlier that same month and is clearly capable of putting in a winning performance. There are plenty of horses capable of getting involved here including Reinvent, Airdrigh, Cappajune Lady, Jackie Daniels, Michaels Pick and Slieve Donard.
