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, is taking a breather whilst organisers marshall fresh plans.
We will bring you news on the other two fixtures when it is released.
