A brand new course to the point-to-point calendar in January 2020, it is situated in the heart of Wexford point-to-point racing, taking place on the lands of handler Matthew Flynn O`Connor, close to fellow handlers Colin Bowe, and the Doyle brothers Cormac, Donnchadh and Sean.

The course itself is a left handed track and the runners will go downhill for a furlong and a half before it levels out. There is a gentle rise to the line.

In all it is a mile around on each circuit with fives fences. Three of the fences are jumped in the home straight, and all of them come before the winning post. There is another fence at top of the course and the fifth fence is in the back straight.


Ballycrystal would be a fast track that I would say suits a horse with a bit of experience behind it as the final three fences can come up quite quickly.

They can get going quite early because there is quite a steep drop into the back straight and it would be a sharp track.

It drains very well and is a great addition to the winter months for horses looking for a bit of better ground in January when other places may be quite testing.
