Track Biography:

Point-to-Point horse racing is a longstanding tradition proudly kept alive in Ireland for the past 250 years and is frequently the starting ground for the new future young stars of the racing circuit. The North Galway Hunt host their annual Point-to-Point fixture in early March each year at Michael Cunningham’s Land in Golden Park, Belclare which is situated just off the N17 between Galway city (33km) and Tuam (7km), and is considered by Point-to-Point experts to be very safe and ideal location for racing, as the land supports a level course with no rise or descent on the circuit.

Point-to-Point racing has been described as the lifeblood of the racing industry in Ireland. For many it is their first introduction to racing, either as participants or as spectators. Many of today’s riders, owners, trainers and officials all received their first taste of racing on the Point-to-Point circuit. The North Galway Point-to Point have had the honour of hosting the maiden race in Belclare for many years, famously won by the legendary ‘Best Mate’, before going on to win three Cheltenham Gold Cups and ‘The Thinker’ who also ran at the North Galway Point-to-Point and subsequently won a Gold Cup race.

We are very lucky that our fixture typically draws a large entry with trainers coming from all over the country to run their horses with us. The continued success of the Point-to-Point in Belclare is much to the credit of the North Galway Point-to-Point Committee who work hard to make this annual sporting event an enjoyable and safe day for participants and spectators alike on the eve of Cheltenham.

We are very lucky to have a hard-working committee who volunteer a lot of their spare time in the lead up to the point-to-point. The North Galway hunt is known for its friendliness and is very welcoming to visitors and spectators.

Our free carpark is a great place to bring your own food and have a picnic from the booth.

If you would like to have a flutter, we have a betting ring of which some of the bookmakers present also provide betting for track racing taking place in England and Ireland.

If you are still feeling peckish during your days racing we have a mobile fast food supplier  that serve fish, burgers, tasty chips, tea and coffee to keep you full for the day. Soft drinks may also be purchased from our caterers.

We have a choice of drinks on offer, from teas and coffees to soft drinks served to you from our outside catering vendors.

If you would like something a little stronger to keep you warm on the spring day, alcohol can be purchased on-course.

No, we do not have an official dress code we just advise our race goers to stay warm and dry for your days racing and to prepare yourself for all types of Irish weather.
Yes, we allow dogs to attend the point-to-point, but would ask that they are kept on their leads at all times and in the company of their owners whilst at the track.
Yes, we welcome picnics, however if you would like to avail of our on-course catering options we have to keep everyone fully fed at the races.
Children are most welcome and must be accompanied by a responsible adult. We are lucky enough to have wide open spaces for children to play in a safe enviroment. We always try to make sure it?s a safe fun family day out for all.

There are certain parts of the track that can be used to facilitate disabled parking so as to cater for every eager racegoer.

This is a race that has been won by many quality track performers over the years, none more notable than the subsequent Gold Cup hero Best Mate. PROPER TWELVE brings the pick of the form into this having finished fourth at Comea on debut in a race which saw the first two horses sold for 300,000 stg afterwards. The market will give the best guide as to what to expect from the many newcomers in this.

Preview

GETABELLE took a nice step forward to finish second at Tinahely late last month in what would look the definite standout piece of form. The fortunes of the Denis Murphy stable has improved considerably in recent weeks and Chatshow Host was certainly not without promise when fifth at Tattersalls on debut in a run which she should be able to step up from. We have seen a lot more of Super Dawn in contrast and she would look to be the main danger ahead of Dancing After Dark.

Preview

Although this is a winners contest, the maiden GLOBAL ASSEMBLY could offer the most interest for this as he is a horse that has finished second in a four-year-old maiden in the autumn and he showed that he was coming back to form again at Bandon recently. Garm Colombe came a cropper at the timber rails in the banks race at Lingstown in a very early stage of that race and so should be a threat here despite the quick turnaround, whilst Whiskey For Jack is very experienced for a last time out winner and can get involved in this.

REGARDE would have to be considered particularly unfortunate to still remain a maiden as he looked booked for a first success at Ballycahane recently before almost coming to a complete stop at the final fence which cost him victory. Compensation should come here as he may have the edge over Lucky Zebo and Zalando.

ROLLING CLOUDS has finished fourth in each of his four previous outings and the drop into adjacent company could be rewarded in this. Future Benefits struggled in testing conditions at Knockanard last time but is not without his chance on what he done before that, whilst the newcomers would also have to be given a second look in a race like this.

Preview

FOUR HORSEMEN was a notable disappointment when returning to the pointing fields at Dromahane in late December, but this three-time placed hurdler is worth a second chance as he has been given a break since that effort. Bowtie is another with placed track form having run in bumpers last summer, whilst of those with point form Clonmeen and Knockiel Synge has long been knocking on the door and surely will not be too far away.
