2018 may well have been Ben Harvey's first season point-to-pointing, with his father David's Art Lord at Aghabullogue his first mount in January 2018, however Harvey has featured on point-to-point cards in the past, winning a pony race alongside his younger brother Alex at Fairyhouse point in April 2016. The Dubliner, who is a nephew of well-known Bloodstock Agent Daithi Harvey, recorded his first succes between the flags aboard Cheeky Rafeeky for Eddie Power at Bellurgan Park in April 2019. Whilst the 2019/20 season has brought successes when teaming up with handlers such as Gordon Elliott and David Christie, and a first four-year-old winner the 15-length Turtulla victory of Bob Olinger in November 2019 en route to sharing that season's Under-21 title with Brian Lawless in a campaign which saw him record seven point winners, and his first track success when Space Cadet won the valuable Ulster National at Downpatrick in March 2020. In December 2022 he joined the professional ranks.
