Welcome to Barbury Racecourse

Racing at Barbury ceased after the Tedworth fixture in April 2022, and there are no scheduled race meetings during the 2022-23 season. Sadly the operational cost burden on the Barbury Estate proved just too much to sustain racing. The curtain has now fallen on racing at Barbury for the forseeable future after 30 years of great entertainment.

Nevertheless, the three fixtures that comprised the Barbury season are busy finding alternative venues. The International meeting, unique among British fixtures in being open to licensed British and Irish trainers and Irish riders, will take place on Sunday December 11th at Cocklebarrow Racecourse near Northleach in Gloucestershire. 

We will bring you news on the other two fixtures when it is released. 

Meantime, please keep visiting our news pages for articles of interest around Pointing folk in Wiltshire and the continuing success of trainers in the Marlborough area.

Hang In There continued to enhance his reputation as a novice to follow at Market Rasen on Saturday, when winning a 3 runner novice chase by a  27l margin. In truth, there was only ever one horse in it, but the style in which Emma Lavelle's prospective star made the race his own has spectators talking of major honours even at this early stage of a summer.  Hang In There is just another ...
