Point to Point: The Heart of Irish Horse Racing by Pat Healy


Point-to-Point races are steeplechasing races that many see as the heart or grassroots of horse racing in Ireland. These races, the majority of which take place on pop-up courses, are run all around the country by the Irish National Hunt Steeplechase Committee (INHSC). The point-to-point tracks are often farmlands for fifty-one weeks of a year, and are transformed by dedicated volunteers from hunt committees into temporary racetracks for race day. For many people point-to-pointing is their first introduction to racing – either as participants or as spectators.

Point to Point is a photographic book, similar to Thrills and Spills and Flat Out, which includes an introduction to the origins and background of point to pointing. It also features detailed sections on riders, handlers, venues and horses. It is a book that will appeal to a wide readership, not just those that attend the point-to-point races and are involved in the sport but also those who might be interested to learn about this racing and those who are drawn in by the photography.

About the Author

Racing photographer supremo Pat ‘Cash’ Healy is known to many in the horse racing world. His father Liam senior began the family horse racing photography business in the 1970s and today Pat Healy is a familiar figure, with his brother Liam and nephew Kevin, at racetracks around the country and the big meets abroad. Pat has photographed nearly every major winner in thirty years and golden horse racing moments right back to 1979.
