Track Biography:

East Down Foxhounds Point-to-Point course at Tyrella is situated at the foot of the picturesque Mourne Mountains made famous by the Percy French song.

With the 2018 Spring season, East Down will have been racing at Tyrella for fifty four years. Two meetings are held each Spring, in January and March.

Normally the first meeting of the Spring calendar in the Northern Region, Tyrella is a right handed undulating track where, given it’s close proximity to the sea and sandy soil is well drained and more often than not, produces good going.

This video from @NotFromHereStories gives you a snapshot of the picture-postcard setting that Tyrella point-to-point takes place in.

Access for spectators is directly from the road into the car park which is adjacent to the start/finish straight. Visibility is excellent and the whole course can be seen from everywhere.

This allows racegoers to get up close to the action, often from the comfort of their car, should they wish to bring their own picnic for the family.

We have bookmakers on site and some will also show and take bets on track racing in both Ireland and England.
 

Our outside catering vendor has a variety of catering options from tasty hot lunches to sandwiches and confectionary.

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

We don?t have a dress code but do recommend suitable clothing.
Yes, no problem at all but they must be kept on a lead at all times.
Yes, we welcome visitors to bring their own picnics or refreshments but why not treat yourself to something from our outside caterers from your race winnings.
At our point-to-point, we are lucky to have wide open spaces for children to play in a safe environment.
No we do not provide an ATM so we recommend that you make a stop in the nearby towns on your way to the races.

A day at Tyrella point-to-point races is the ideal day out for all the family in the heart of the Mourne Country.

One of the real treats of racing at Tyrella, is just how close racegoers can get to the action.

Watch the horses being saddled up by their trainers before making your way to the parade ring where the horses, jockeys and connections gather to discuss their pre-race tactics.

Derek OConnor has enjoyed a memorable month with his runners in the four-year-old division and BALDWIN THE BRAVE showed plenty of ability when he made his debut in Bellharbour a month ago, as he was holding definite place claims when coming down at the last in a race won by his stablemate Thats Nice. The experience should certainly stand to him. Ellen Doyle won a pair of races in this age group last week, and so her youngsters have to command respect ahead of their debuts.

OCEAN BREW held a slender advantage when losing her rider at the final fence in Ballycrystal back in January, and she could gain compensation here. Suitably Surprised was unable to step forward from her Monksgrange debut when re-appearing at Borris House most recently, but her stable has had recent success to suggest that the stable is in better form, whilst the twice placed Side Show and Howya Luveen, who went close around here in January, are others that can get involved.

The final fence proved to be the undoing of DARK SOLDIER when he was on home turf at Ballycrystal in January, and whilst it may only have been a confined maiden, the horse that he was challenging for success brought strong four-year-old form into the contest to suggest it was smart for the grade. Bold Recruit brings course form, having finished third around here last time, which has to be respected.

Wallace Olinger had the measure of the potentially re-opposing Voleur De Terres at Loughanmore in the autumn, but with his stable having gone close to a month without a winner, it may be worth taking a chance with RYEHILL, who has never finished outside of the first two to date. Slievehill hacked up here last time after slipping the field, and his rivals will be mindful not to allow him repeat that feat, whilst Commander Of Ten won just last Saturday.

Preview

SLIEVEHILL was able to slip the field here in January to return over 30 lengths clear of the pack in a win that was not too surprising given his form with John The Spark from the autumn, and he could continue an excellent 2024 for the stable. Voleur De Terres has finished placed in all four starts this season, winning twice, including by a similarly wide margin at Kirkistown. They give this a strong look, with Ballybrittas adding further depth as a recent course maiden winner.

Preview

LORD DESRT has been knocking on the door for the past 11 months, finishing placed on all five starts in that period, including when only denied by a neck at Bellharbour most recently. That could give him the edge over the Moira third Some Bro, whilst Cresthill, who represents in-form connections, and Howya Luveen, who went close around here in January, are other contenders.
