Owners & Trainers

At Barbury, we know just what an achievement it is to get a horse to the racecourse, never mind winning a race. This is a location where the Thoroughbred comes first.

We are very pleased to welcome Owners, Riders and Keepers to Barbury Races. We’ll make every effort to ensure that your day meets your expectations, whatever the outcome of your race.

Owners will be provided 4 individual tickets per horse, mailed to you electronically before the event.

We work with sponsors to deliver the best prize money we can. Whilst there are limits laid down by the rules of the sport, you won't find us wanting on trophies and awards. Dubarry sponsor the leading Trainer award, and the Moloh Leading Lady Owner award offers £1,000 to spend at their prestigious shops in Tetbury, Pimlico and at Cheltenham racecourse. 

At the International fixture, refreshments are provided free of charge to owners in the Members Bar.  

Please use the Contact Us details to call us with any special requirements and we’ll do our utmost to assist.

 

Equine Flu regulations

BHA Regulations since the outbreak in the Spring have been relaxed. The Declarations Teams will check a random number of passports to check that the horses’ vaccination dates are correct, and comply with latest BHA update. In that respect Regulation 36 in general remains extant except that the Vaccination date must be within NINE calendar months (e.g. 1 January – 1 October) (eight months plus a one-month grace period) of the day of the race rather than the year listed in Regulation 36. NB The month’s grace has now been extended in 2020, whilst BHA works with other countries to agree a new harmonised vaccination requirement for racehorses in Europe. 

  • Compliant EI vaccination within twelve calendar months will continue to be acceptable for horses NOT on racecourse property (e.g.) injured horses which are not currently racing
  • There is NO requirement to submit information in advance – where necessary, passports will be checked by BHA staff upon entry to the Racecourse
  • There is NO requirement to submit a Health Declaration Form or for a nasopharyngeal swab (PCR) to be completed

Who Dares Wins victory in the closing race of this year’s Royal Ascot has only confirmed what many shrewd racewatchers have clocked already; Alan King’s Barbury stable is a force to be reckoned with at Flat racing’s top table. When was the last time a so-called Jumps trainer enjoyed 3 winners at Britain’s most prestigious fixture? Truly, to label Alan solely as a Jumps trai...

The giant continent that is Australia is mad keen on its racing. There are 400 racecourses across every state and Tasmania too, supporting over 30,000 horses in training. And recent British and Irish success in the world-famous Melbourne Cup has cemented focus in Northern Hemisphere owners and trainers on the riches available in Oz. Sadly though, Jump racing represents less than 2% of the racing ...
