The Hunt dates back to the early 20th century and has been running point-to-point meetings since the mid-1950s. This is our third track to run Askeaton point-to-point on. The first being where the County Limericks have run for the past few years. Adrian Maguire rode his 1st winner there for Michael Hourigan. This was a track PP Hogan had many great days on with the likes of the great Underway, Any Crack, Shrewd Operator and many more.
Then we moved to Toomdeely where the late John Thomas McNamara rode his first winner, for his uncle Andrew, on our first day there in 1996. There were plenty of good horses who won on this track including the likes of Strong Flow, Noble Thyne one of only a few horses to beat Istabraq and more recently Rogue Angel won a four-year-old maiden and went on to win the Irish Grand National in 2016.
Our track this year is a flat left handed course and is located on the verge of Askeaton village.
