Track Biography:

Laois Hunt Foxhounds hold ther bi-annualy Point-to-Point race meetings on the grounds of Stradbally Hall, the venue for the fixtures for over twenty years. Btoh meetings ran at Stradbally are held in the Spring, the first in mid-April and the second in mid-May. Ease of access and the unique setting make this a very popular event.

Stradbally Hall, as it appears today, dates from the middle of the 19th century. Stradbally Hall has been the seat of the Cosby family since the reign of Edward VI. We are very lucky to have such a picturesque setting where spectators have a view of the full course which runs over beautiful parkland.

One of the joys of point-to-point racing is the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the future stars of Irish racing. Fundamentalist begun his racing career between the flags in the Irish countryside. The Cheltenham Festival winner recorded three wins in the pointing field, the second of which was achieved at Stradbally.

It is advised that they make themselves known to the stewards who will be clearly identified by “hi-vis” stewards jackets.

Temporary toilets are provided in a number of locations on site.

Changing facilities for babies and toddlers can be provided, if needed, in the ladies changing area.

Disabled persons requiring toilet facilities will be accommodated in the adjoining stable yard at the Equestrian Centre.

Outside caterers provide hot food options to order in the form of burgers and chips and similar fast food options. These are located near the parade ring and bookmakers.

The venue lends itself very well to family picnics when the weather is favourable.  Separate catering facilities are provided for sponsors and officials.

Coffee Express offer a selection of coffees and hot drinks while the fast food caterers offer soft drinks.

There is no bar on site but there are a number of local hostelries in Stradbally where you can either celebrate a win or alternatively wonder where it all went wrong.

There is no official dress code. Smart casual attire is advised but most importantly, it should be suited to the weather on the day.
Dogs are more than welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.
Stradbally Hall is a beautiful venue and when the weather is favorable, it is a wonderful setting for an afternoon picnic. We encourage this and have seen many groups enjoy everything from mini BBQ on a sunny afternoon to hot-toddies during chillier weather.
Kid's entertainment is provided typically in the form of a bouncy castle or a similar attraction depending on the weather.
There is no ATM at the course but there is an ATM in Supervalu which is located across the road from the entrance to Stradbally Hall.

Stradbally Hall is a very picturesque venue that is easy to access from all routes. It is well known as the location for the Electric Picnic Festival which is held in September.

With a superb view of the track, this event is ideal for those who would like to enjoy a picnic while watching the racing.

Parking is available very close to the final fence and finish line.

Children’s entertainment is provided. This is typically a bouncy castle or similar attraction depending on the weather at the time.

USURPER was turned out quickly having shown promise on his debut at Oldcastle over Easter, however he could not improve upon that second placing when finishing fourth seven days later at Monksgrange. He is sure to have been freshened up since and could be the one to following on that opening effort. Poncherello has been unable to repeat his debut performance from Lisronagh but could figure in this if bouncing back, whilst Sparta Maestro has not been seen since coming down at the final fence in Inchydoney 12 months ago.

MYRONS could return back between the flags here having acquitted himself well in the hunter chase sphere where he finished within five lengths of Ucello Conti at Thurles. That form would leave him as the one to beat in this. Oscar Academy goes in search of a hat-trick following his latest success at Bellurgan Park, whilst Golden Nomad and Ya Boy Ya are others that should find conditions in their favour.

COTTON ROCK should be a tough nut to crack in this following two narrow defeats of late, including his latest at Lisronagh which came at the hands of last weeks Downpatrick Hunter Chase victor My Oakclahome. Glorious Ziva was only beaten by a neck in a similar contest around here last month and will have the advantage of the mares five-pound allowance, whilst Captain Commander did not factor in the recent Bishopscourt Cup but did make the frame at Dowth Hall in the autumn.

SAMANNTOM has been in cracking form of late winning three races on the bounce since the middle of April and he could well extend that winning run in the hands of Susie Doyle who is chasing a first ladies title. Longhouse Music returned in splendid isolation around here last month in a two-runner mares open and has since won a further two races to bring her total to ten for the season. Her chief champion point-to-point horse rival Kruzhlinin is the other danger.

Preview

TOP QUESTION has shown a good deal of improvement in recent times, culminating in just a narrow defeat in Dromahane late last month which should leave him as a big player in this. Hellenic Fire made his seasonal re-appearance around here last month and then went on to run with credit on each of the following two weekends. Having shown promise at this course with his second placing he will surely not be too far away, alongside Bronco Bill, Mustmeetforapint and Goldazar.
