Track Biography:

Ballindenisk point-to-point has a long history of holding point-to-points, dating back over a hundred years. The original point-to-point races were held over a banks course in the 1890’s.

The course is situated on the farm of Robert Fell and is also used for eventing as well as having hosted European and World Championships. Set in a rural area near Watergrasshill the course is made up of volunteer racing enthusiasts which includes former jockey/trainer and Clerk of the course John O’Callaghan.

Over the years Ballindenisk has produced many top class horses that have gone on to sell for large amounts of money in the UK sales. These include Conna Castle, Native Jack, Artic Copper and Awbeg Prince.
