Thanks for visiting Barbury Races this season. We'll be back in action in the autumn with the announcement of the new season's fixtures

Welcome to Barbury Races

Another Point-to-Point season beckons, as Barbury once again plays host to four fixtures, including the most valuable fixture in the UK calendar - the Barbury International. 

Four fixtures have seen some change with the International pulled forward to Sunday December 16th to close off Cheltenham's International weekend fixture, and the Vine & Craven switching their second fixture following the closure of Hackwood Park from Easter Monday to Sunday November 25th. The second February fixture and the traditional Tedworth April fixture are in their usual slots.

Barbury Castle Estate is home to top flight equestrian sport at every level. Barbury Racecourse stages four Point-to-Point meetings each season, 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 Point-to-Point Owners & Riders Meeting to the Tedworth in April, this is a venue where you can enjoy breath-taking scenery, very fresh air, archly competitive racing and the only international Point-to-Point fixture in the UK. 

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

Check the fixtures and programme here, or take advantage of our advance booking to reserve your ticket. Meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful venue, and to helping you get the best from your racing.

Barbury is a centre of excellence, whether it's from horses trained by Alan and Neil King on the Barbury downland, as past results of the Cheltenham Festival show, at the Point-to-Point races, or at the upcoming horse trials. We've often remarked that Barbury attracts good quality horses, and that a winner at Barbury Races is a measure of a good horse, whatever the race. The efforts of o...
