Track Biography:

The first Westmeath Foxhounds point-to-point took place in Loughegar in 1875. The Westmeath Foxhounds point to point committee have been holding meetings in Castletown Geoghegan for almost forty years. Prior to that, meetings were held at Mullingar Racecourse at Newbrook and Cullion, now the venue of Mullingar Showgrounds and Mullingar Rugby grounds.

During our Spring fixture we have one of the most prestigious contests run in the point-to-point circuit, the Barbour Cup. It has been the race where many racing stars have returned to point-to-pointing to run in Open Lightweights and have taken part in this historic race.

In addition, many young horses who have won their maiden here, have continued very successful careers on the track.For example previous course winner,  It Takes Time won the Ascot Gold Cup and wasthird in the Stayers Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival aswell as finshing fourth in the English Grand National. Royal Caviar, who won his maiden in 2013, went on to win four times on the track as well as finishing fourth in the 2017 Arkle chase at the Cheltenham festival.

We have an extensive car parking area which offers a brilliant view of the whole track. This allows you to bring your picnic in the boot of your vehicle which you can enjoy with your family and friends during the day’s racing.

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

 

We have outside caterers who supply a variety of tasty hot foods such as burgers, sausages and chips. There will also be a range of confectionaries on offer all of which are reasonably priced.

Alternatively, why not come along early and enjoy a picnic before the action gets under way or take a break midway through the day to refuel from the boot of your car. Our extensive car park is the perfect location to relish the atmosphere of the races whilst entertaining friends and family.

Our outside caterers sell teas, coffees and soft drinks to keep you warm during your days racing.

There are also three pubs in the nearby village of Castletown-Geoghegan where there is always a great welcome and atmosphere for patrons before and after racing.

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. However, we do ask that all dogs are kept on a lead at all times.

You have the opportunity to get a close up of the action when the runners are being saddled and paraded in the parade ring before their race. There is great excitement for racegoers as once you have picked out your favourite horse you can proceed to the bookies to have a little flutter.

Nothing beats the excitement of the closing stages of a race and our track ensures that you have a birdseye view. Our final fence and finishing straight are both fantastic viewing points for both spectators in their cars and spectators on foot.

Castletown-Geoghegans course is only a ten-minute drive from the picturesque Lough Ennell where the hugley popular Lilliput Adventure centre is located. If you would like to make a weekend of your time in the Midlands, Lilliput has something to offer for all of the family. If Kayaking or obstacle courses arent what you are after, why not call into Belvedere House and gardens located only 15 minutes from the point-to-point.

Preview

The Gigginstown House Stud-owned BATTLE OF ACTIUM finished a fine second in a big-field maiden at Turtulla on debut and he can be expected to step up here to continue the good run of form that the Colin Bowe team have been enjoying in recent weeks. Donnchadh Doyle also has his four-year-olds in good form, and fresh from a Portrush double in the age group last Saturday,he could be represented by Firak who also finished second on debut at Turtulla. Direct Line and The Grey Falco are others to have offered promise to date.

TATTLETALE took a big step forward when second at Ballyragget last month and if he could back that effort up here, he would surely not be too far away. Fully Charged has also shown improvement this season, culminating in his second at Durrow a fortnight ago, whilst Arrow Force, Freedelivery and Eurowork are others for the short list.

DONJON got the better of Star Wizard to win this race 12 months ago, and the pair could once again lock swords in a rematch here, which could also feature the 2017 winner, Didarro. Now a ten-year-old, he made his debut for the William Ross yard when fourth in an open at Oldtown in February, but he has to overturn a 22-length defeat to both Donjon and Star Wizard from last years renewal.

Preview

ROCKFIELD FAME made much of the running when also filling the third place spot on her latest showing, that coming at Liscarroll, and that could leave her as the one to beat, in a race that on paper looks to be wide open. Stable mate Quivvy Lough has twice finished placed in four-year-old company and ran well in a very competitive Borris House maiden most recently, whilst Cappajune Lady has run a number of solid races this season and represents local connections.

Preview

SOME ARE LUCKY goes in search of a fifth victory of the season as he returns from a non-completion at last months Cheltenham Festival. His form from this season leaves him as the one to beat. Cavite Beta may well now be getting on in years as a 13-year-old veteran, but he has still run some fine races in defeat this season and cannot be discounted. Anseanachai Cliste is a former champion point-to-pointer, whilst Kirkistown winner Horendus Hulabaloo was far from disgraced at Durrow and would have to hold place claims once again here.

FIDDLER OF DOONEY has not enjoyed the greatest of luck this season, with the final fence proving to be his undoing on more than one occasion this season, including when upsides at Durrow a fortnight ago. He would be a deserving winner of this. Pyrios has yet to fully recapture his track from this season but cannot be ruled out, whilst the returning The Secret Mason is another danger.
