The Island Hunt dates back to the early 1900's and is based in Gorey Co.Wexford. Courtown point-to-point is held under the auspices of the Island Hunt.
Last year was the first running of the fixture at its current venue, and already the track has been witness to some very promising looking individuals. Burning Ambition took the winners race on the day and has since clocked up three futher pointing wins, a hunter chase win and ran very well for a long time at the Cheltenham Festival. The Pierce Power-trained gelding is now a leading fancy for Aintree's Foxhunters Chase.
Courtown and the surrounding area is blessed with fabulous long sandy beaches stretching from Kilpatrick beach which is north of Courtown and should you drive down the coast road from Courtown to Wexford you will come across a plethora of beaches for you to chose from.
