Sunday 2nd February – Knockmullen House, New Ross, Co, Wexford, Y34 PX63
Point-to-points are horse racing in its purist form and you will often hear it described as the grassroots of horse racing in Ireland.
This is because unlike the racing you may see on television which takes place at permanent racecourses like Leopardstown, point-to-point racing takes place at what are effectively pop-up courses right around the country.
Point-to-Points is the perfect day out for all the family in the Irish countryside and where you will get to witness the future stars of the racing industry make their introduction into competitive racing.
The Knockmullen venue offers spectacular viewing facilities for race-goers. Spectators can get right up close to the horses, watch them being saddled before being paraded in the ring.
Unlike most racecourses, spectators can stand beside one of the fences and feel the power of the horses as they jump a fence in full flight or get close to the winning post for a bird eye view of the thrilling action.
