Barbury for Kids

Barbury's the perfect place to introduce children to horseracing. There's no dress code, plenty of room to run around, and no restrictions on noise!

Try walking the course to work up an appetite for the Barbury Buttery, or come and see the jockeys weigh in and out. Pointing gives a perfect opportunity for your children to clamber on top of your car to view the races. 

And if they're really full of energy, a short walk to Barbury's iron age fort will let off some steam and allow you back before racing finishes for the day!

If you like horses or the wide open expanse of the Wiltshire Downs, Barbury Races is for you.

Barbury was a sadder place today with the news that Lil Rockerfeller, a stalwart of Neil King's burgeoning traing operation along the ridge at Burderop, had succumbed to a heart attack after the listed Dawn Run Chase at Auteuil on Sunday.  The ultimate trier among racehorses was running for Andrew Hollinshead, who trains in France, following a spell with Tom George's successful French raidin...

You know the racing world is short of news when the hoary old chestnut of yet another day to the Cheltenham Festival rears its ugly head again.  I can scarcely believe this debate has resurfaced once more, and it must surely be the case that this rumour emanated far from Prestbury Park. There are so many reasons why a 5 day Festival should not come on the agenda presently.  Ground Som...
