Track Biography:

The Pigeon Hill Committee and the Carrigtwohill Committee amalgamated in 1958 to form the Pigeon Hill & Carrigtwohill point-to-point Committee.

They have organised a Point-to-Point in the Carrigtwohill area ever since. 2018 is the 60th Anniversary of this race meeting.

Traditionally race day has been an occasion when the people of the parish came out in large numbers to enjoy a day of fun and activity. 
Full details of all our special offers are on the Pigeon Hill and Carrigtwohill Point to Point Facebook Page.

The excellent condition and quality of the Ballyvodock track historically has attracted a large number of entries from owners and trainers from all over Ireland.

The course at Ballyvodock is now in its fourth year and this track has found favour with both owners/ trainers and with the public as it is a big galloping track with a marvellous natural viewing stand. They race for two and a half circuits of the course in an anti-clockwise direction.

Our free parking is located close to the finishing straight which allows race goers to get a close-up of the action from the comfort of their cars if they wish.

We also provide a disability parking area with fence viewing on the home straight.

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

The course will have a tent with soup and sandwiches for sale which are prepared by some of our committee members.

We also have an outside catering vendor which has a variety of catering options for sale from burgers and baps to chips.

Each year we also have an ice cream van in attendance.
 

Race goers can avail of the wide variety on offer.

There will be teas and coffees available from our hard working volunteers in our catering tent.

We would also recommend sampling some of our home-made soup.  The perfect 'warmer upper' between races.

Whilst our outside caterer will have a range of minerals on offer.

Something to suit all members of the family.

No, we do not have an official dress code we just advise our race goers to wear warm clothing and wellies.
Dogs are very welcome, but need to be kept on a lead at all times.
Yes, we welcome visitors to bring their own picnics as they are an integral part of the point-to-point experience.
At our point-to-point, we have a bouncing castle and face painting in the marquee for our younger race goers.
No we do not provide an ATM so we recommend that you make a stop in the nearby town of Carrigtwohill on your way to the races.

Traditionally race days have been an occasion when the people of the parish came out in large numbers to enjoy a day of fun and activity.

To mark the 60th milestone this year’s meeting has been designated as a Family Fun Day with special emphasis on entertaining the young in a safe enclosed children’s play area with a Bouncing Castle and Face Painting in the Marquee and other entertainment while the adults enjoy the races and maybe back a winner with the Bookies.

With none of the 16 entrants in this having previous placed form this could be a nice opportunity for GAME ON BABE to take advantage of. Although finishing fourth at Ballycrystal a fortnight ago, she was beaten less than two lengths on that occasion and clearly comes into this in good form. Off the newcomers, Bean Alainn cost E40,000 as a store and is out of a mare that won four times on the track for Mick Winters.

MILLFORCE chased home the recent Cheltenham sales topper Old Tom Morris at Turtulla recently in what would look to be the pick of the form on offer in this. Joining Force, Incitatus and Karisto are among those to have made a promising start to their careers, whilst Final Demand cost E230,000 at the Derby sale in 2022 and would be an interesting debutant in this.

MANATEE DU BRIZAIS impressed when opening his account at Ballindenisk four weeks ago, and he could be the one to take a chance on in a race that on paper has a strong look to it. Saffron Hill hails from a similarly in-form stable and goes in search of a hat-trick, whilst Wise Move and West Of Carrig are both proven in winners grade, with the former winning well in Turtulla.

Garret Ahern has already won an adjacent maiden in recent weeks with a horse that has joined his stable from Barry Connell, and DOWN THE PARK could make a winning return to his stable following an unsuccessful spell with Conell in maiden hurdles. She had finished placed in a Fairyhouse bumper last season, and that would look to be the best form on offer in a tricky looking race.

LA FELINE won this contest two years, dead-heating with O Mio Babbino on that occasion, and she will be to get her season back on track following a rare below-bar performance at Boulta in November. The winner that day, Dul Ar Aghaidh, never travelled when stepping into hunter chase company at Limerick, whilst the five-time hurdle winner Robyndglory has to be respected given the connections that she represents.

Preview

CASTLE CROIUIL was supported ahead of his debut and he was in the process of running a fine race at Ballindenisk before Christmas when exiting at the last. His connections could gain compensation here. Malinas Glory was placed over fences at Tramore last year off a mark of 100 and is a danger on his return from a break, whilst the ever-consistent Creegh Native and Ballindenisk Our Story are others for the shortlist.
