Welcome to Barbury Races

A new season's Point-to-Point steeplechasing is just around the corner as we enter the autumn, and after two interrupted winters, we're due a full winter's entertainment to put the past 18 months behind us. 

Barbury is delighted to play host once again to three fixtures, from December to April, each of which provides valuable opportunities to develop young horses, riders and trainers, that will be household names in the professional sport in years to come. 

Barbury is home to top flight equestrian sport at every level. Home to top Jumps trainer Alan King, and within hailing distance of his namesake Neil King at Burderop and Emma Lavelle at Ogbourne St George,Barbury Racecourse is at the centre of a renaissance of Jumps success in north Wiltshire, in which Pointing plays a central part. And of course, the estate plays host to Barbury Horse Trials in July. Truly, this is a setting where excellence can flourish across multiple equine disciplines.

The natural amphitheatre that surrounds the racecourse offers superb viewing of the entire course, easy access to the paddock and winner’s enclosure, and excellent racing ground on our chalky soil to bring out the best in any thoroughbred. From the opening International Meeting to the Tedworth in April, this is a venue where you can enjoy breath-taking scenery, very fresh air, archly competitive racing and great company with like-minded horsemen from across Wiltshire and surrounding counties. 

And with easy access via the motorway network, Barbury’s appeal as a racing venue stretches far and wide as our International fixture illustrates. 

Enjoy the unique flavour of the International meeting to launch our season in mid-December, followed by the Vince & Craven in February and the Tedworth in balmy Spring sunshine the day after the Grand National in April. 

Meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful venue, and to helping you get the best from your racing.

Jemima P has Emma Lavelle browsing the Programme Book to find mares chases after her 7 year old Irish bred mare reeled off a fourth novice handicap chase since March from just five runs at Worcester yesterday. The mare has risen 27lb since winning her first chase at Exeter in early Spring.  No-one will pretend that novice handicaps at Exeter, Worcester and Ffos Las are among the best of the ...

Admiral's Sunset and Page Fuller continue to fly the flag for the small yard of David Weston, after back to back victories at Stratford last month, and yesterday at Worcester. Since going chasing in May, this likeable mare has only been out of the frame once from seven runs.  Although the winning distance was just a length, Fuller had the runner-up covered, leading 3 out, and shaken up when ...

David Weston's small yard at Flintstone Stud in East Kennett has doubled its 5 year tally of winners in the 4 months since this nascent National Hunt season began. We've already written about the exploits of Solstalla, winner of 3 races at Newton Abbot, Southwell and Worcester. On Thursday, it was the turn of another mare, Admiral's Sunset, to fly the flag for this unassuming Wiltshire yard. And ...

Alan King is rapidly becoming a man for the big occasion on the flat as well as over the Jumps. There aren't many trainers who can boast a Champion Hurdle and a Goodwood Cup on their CV. And this year's Glorious Goodwood must surely be right up there with Royal Ascot 2020 after the most versatile trainer in the UK added the Group II Richmond Stakes over 6f to Trueshan's victory in the Goodwood Cup...
