Global biotechnology firm Randox is once again hosting the Killultagh, Old Rock and Chichester Hunt Point to Point at Crumlin, County Antrim.

The Randox Point to Point will take place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th of April, at Largy Road in Crumlin.

Point to Points are now firmly established in national hunt racing, with several champion horses starting their careers on the Irish Point to Point circuit, including several Grand National Winners, last year’s Randox Point-to-Point was no exception; Classic Place, winner of the Dennison’s Commercials four year old geldings maiden, was sold to Gigginstown House Stud (owned by Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary) and is now trained by Ireland’s top National Hunt trainer, Willie Mullins.

Duke Arcadio won the Stonebridge Premium Feeds five year old confirmed maiden and is now trained by Donald McCain in England. Duke Arcadio then went on to win at Ayr at his next outing.

Pumped Up kicks won the Delta Packaging Mares winner of three. She is now owned and trained by Dan Skelton in England and has won two further races at Perth.

Randox Managing Director, Dr Peter FitzGerald said: “We are pleased to once again host the Point to Point where champions are made.

“As an award winning diagnostics company, we 
succeed because we are ahead of the curve and so we support events which encourage entrepreneurship, team work and healthy competition!

“We look forward to this year’s two day meeting where we might spot the next Cheltenham Gold Cup or Aintree Grand National winner.”

This popular event isn’t just for racing enthusiasts, everyone is welcome to enjoy the food stands, craft stalls and family festivities. General admission is £5 per person, with free entry for children under the age of 16.

The first race on Friday 24th April will start at 
4pm; on Saturday 25th April, the first race takes place at 2pm.
