Broughshane point-to-point was introduced as the Mid-Antrim`s new spring course in 2015 and is a left-handed course.

Runners begin alongside the penultimate fence and have quite a short run to the first fence before passing in front of the winning post and turning left-handed to race away from the enclosures. After jumping fence two, there is quite a steep descent before the runners turn once again to run along the side of the course and fence three. This is a short straight, as the runners turn left-handed once again, and begin the climb which will eventually bring them back to the winning post.

Ahead of the 2017 fixture, a significant kink was added to what effectively is the home straight, as once going through the first gap, the runners bare slightly left-handed into the center of the course to jump fence four. Once going out over this fence, the track almost immediately begins to turn right-handed to bring the runners back to the main course, with a slightly left-handed bend bringing them to fence five and their point of departure. Having not held a fixture in 2018, this kink was removed in 2019. Now in the home straight proper, runners cross over the final fence and face the short run-in to the line.

The late Grade 2-placed Calino DAiry, alongside the likes of Born Survivor and Ravenhill Road, who were both subsequently sold for big sums, all won their maidens at the course.


Broughshane would a very undulating track where it is a big advantage to be on a horse that has a bit of experience behind them.

The undulations would be quite steep, so that experience really counts in their favour here and you would be mindful of that when deciding how to ride a horse around it.
