Ballinrobe Upcoming Live Streamed Races
Next up we’ll provide an overview of the Ballinrobe racecourse and outline what to watch on the live streaming service.
Ballinrobe Course Overview
This westerly track is fairly small despite being dual-purpose, however that doesn’t stop it from having its admirers and regular fans; In 2012, Ballinrobe Racecourse was awarded Racecourse of the Year by the Irish Racegoers Consultative Forum.
Given the size of the facilities, and the fact there are only nine meetings per year, the venue doesn’t stage consistent listed and graded level races. However, every now and then a top prospect does arrive at Ballinrobe as part of their path to the top.
The flat course is a compressed oval, almost like a bullet shape. The bends can be very sharp depending on the distance the race is run over.
The course does favour the pacy frontrunners given how the sharp bend coming on to the one furlong long home straight is difficult to make up ground on. And, if you’re without an instant turn of foot, the short straight means that infrequently horses are caught up with there.
A low draw is always handy at Ballinrobe, especially for six and seven furlong races where the swooping bend comes around quickly. That’s because they can secure a strong position against the rail and then push on when their jockey decides to urge them onwards.
Unsurprisingly, the National Hunt circuit is incredibly like the flat course in terms of shape and sharpness. However, the National Hunt side of Ballinrobe has two tracks: an old track and a new one.
The old track is a tight track and really plays to the advantage of those who have the inside rail. The sharpness of the bend coming on to the home straight is also a standout feature.
Jockeys who are caught going too fast heading into the bend often lose plenty of lengths when they try and turn as they have overshot it. Therefore, having the inside rail keeps runners pinned in and decreases the risk of that happening.
The new track runs alongside the outside of the old track. As a consequence it loses the sharpness of the circuit which makes it a fairer and more galloping track. Both tracks have an uphill back straight and downhill finish of two and a half furlongs.
Similarly to the flat track, the run-in is just one furlong long and are free of hurdles and fences. Saying that, many would argue it wouldn’t make a difference if there was a fence present in that final straight because they are the simplest fences in racing to get over.
Views at Ballinrobe Racecourse
When you watch the Ballinrobe racing live stream you may notice that the only track in County Mayo has views that are nothing less than stunning.
The course has been placed in a prime location to allow it to drain well and keep the grass looking luscious and clipped. It has to be said that the groundskeepers do an impeccable job considering how many miles of greenery the venue has.
The racecourse looks simple but effective; it has a large, accommodating grandstand matched with a traditional building to blend in with the neighbouring stables and buildings.
The grandstand looks out over the track and nothing else. There are just a few distant trees visible if you’re looking out for something besides the horses. This simple setup is incredibly attractive to fans and allows the race to be watchable from every angle on the concourse.
If you’re looking for a niche but traditional racing experience, Ballinrobe Racecourse will most certainly provide that. It has everything one would expect from a racecourse, but with that essence of ‘homeliness’.
The course is welcoming, secluded and puts all eyes on the great Irish horses that are running.
Ballinrobe Races Live Stream Calendar Highlights
The most attractive race for owners to send their horse to, for jumps, is the Irish EBF Fillies Handicap. The one mile and five furlong race often takes place in June. It can be run in by fillies that are three years old and older (and have a handicap mark between 60-90).
The race can attract some upcoming prospects who are looking for a decent and fair run. However, owners don’t really send them to the race with the intention of securing a large sum of money given the twenty-five thousand euro prize pot.
