Fixtures

Barbury stages four fixtures each season covering the period from December - April. Here's a description of each: 

Sunday November 26

Six races begin at noon and feature qualifiers for the Dodson & Horrell Novice Rider Series Final and the Connollys Red Mills Series Final at Cheltenham in May. 

Admission from £10, (no advance purchase) 

Saturday January 20

The Barbury International is the first ever Point-to-Point to draw together riders and horses from the UK and Ireland on a UK Point-to-Point course. Races are also open to licensed trainers provided horses have not run under Rules for 50 days and are qualified with a hunt. And the event stages the first ever Point-to-Point Bumper. It's all designed to encourage the development of young horses in our sport, and promises some hot competition. 

Admission can be purchased in advance here

Sunday February 11

The Vine & Craven's first race meeting stages 7 races beginning at 1130. There's a national qualifier for the Subaru Restricted Series Final in June, and some archly competitive races to blow away the cobwebs, as well as trade stands to while away the time between races.There's a fair chance you'll bump into one of Wiltshire or Lambourn's many National Hunt trainers, so it's a good place to get a steer on what's hot for the following month's Cheltenham Festival. 

Admission from £10. 

Sunday April 8

The Tedworth concludes the Barbury racing season featuring the £750 Tedworth Gold Cup over 3 3/4 miles in a six race card that provides plenty of opportunity for shopping, children's activities and all the fun of a country fair. 

Admission from £10
