Track Biography:

The first race meeting to take place at Bellharbour was in 1817, when the Burren races were held at the strand at Munnia, organised by Bindon Scott and Burton Bindon who also acted as stewards.

Nowadays the races in their current format take place on the first Sunday of February. The track is situated between the wild Atlantic and the majestic Burren and this makes the point-to-point in Bellharbour one of the most picturesque meetings in Ireland.

Bellharbour has proved to be an excellent source of young talent in recent years.
Dlauro, now with Joseph O’Brien won his maiden here two years ago and Gordon Elliott’s Ball D’Arc was a winner at Bellharbour in 2015 and has since gone on to perform at the highest level including 3rd in the Grade 1 Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown and winner of two Grade 3’s at Naas.
Winner of the Pertemps Network Final at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016, Mall Dini, also won at this meeting in 2015.
Other exciting young talent to come from this meeting include bumper winner and recent novice hurdle winner, Way Back Then and Burren Life, also trained by Gordon Elliott, a recent winner of a Novice Hurdle at Thurles and also placed in both Grade 2 and Grade 3 company over hurdles.

There are a number of interesting newcomers in this who are likely set to be involved in this, but of those with previous form, CARROLLS PRIDE likely has the pick of the recent form having run a career best to finish second at Turtulla. Sophie Gold has not quite reproduced the best of her form and has over ten lengths to find with the selection on their latest meeting, whilst Racing Daisy could make a quick re-appearance after her third at Cragmore last Sunday.

SAMCRO skipped a potential engagement in Hunter Chase company at Down Royal over Christmas and instead could bid to win his fifth open and second of the season. After completely destroying his opposition in his three outings last season, he was some way below that at Tinahely most recently, and it will be interesting how he fares here. Lifetime Ambition would be the most talented rival that he will have encountered in the open lightweight division, being a 152-rated chaser himself, whilst Winged Leader is a 13-time winner between the flags and has to be respected.

LORD DESART is back in the maiden company after finishing placed in a winners contest at Tinahely in early January and having made the frame in each of his four career starts to date; he would be a very worthy winner of this. Grange Soldier posted his best effort to date when second in Ballycrystal recently, whilst Creegh Native is another that has been knocking on the door, and again should not be too far away.
