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

"Quality will out" is a watchword for racing at Aintree nowadays, where the era of long-priced unfancied horses has largely been put to bed by changes to race conditions and the shape of the fences. And perhaps the racing over the National fences is better for that.  That quality was proven yesterday when 3/1 favourite It's On The Line, trained by Emmet Mullins, and ridden by Derek O'Connor,...

Time Leader and Spyglass offer the best chance of continued home-grown success on the Randox Foxhunter Chase, the second of the three "classics" of the amateur season tomorrow at Aintree.  Twenty-two runners line up for the thrill of a lifetime - a circuit of Aintree's Grand National fences, but rarely nowadays, the ground will be soft or heavy, which always throws up some imponderables. Ti...

Can you name me a trainer who has improved his strike rate nearly threefold this season? I thought not.  Robbie Llewellyn is proving that the small man can make training work, notching his 22nd winner of the season this afternoon at Hereford with Ask Me Another in the National Hunt Novices Hurdle. Llewellyn is a product of the South Wales School of Training Excellence, but has now set up sho...

The misery continues for fixture secretaries in the Three Counties, following the opening of the heavens again. Fixtures at Maisemore on April 13 - already rescheduled from te end of March - and Woodford for the Berkeley Races, have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.  A season to forget between the flags. Perhaps Latenightpass and Sine Nomine can shed some sunlight on the Point-to-P...
