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

There are some similarities between the Point-to-Point track at Barbury Racecourse and the home of National Hunt horse racing, Cheltenham. Both venues are left-handed and undulating, thus putting a real emphasis on stamina. In the equine hubs that surround nearby Marlborough and Lambourn, racehorses are trained both for running between the flags and under Rules. The powerful stables of ...

The Barbury Castle winner machine that is Alan King has been enjoying plenty of success in bread and butter races, but to maintain a position at racing's top table, it's the big races that enable you both to catch the eye and rack up some valuable prize money on which your ranking is decided.  Such is Alan's reputation that we've grown to expect winners in the big Pattern and handicaps that ...

Britain's latest lockdown has put paid to Point-to-Point fixtures until at least the third week in February, and very likely later, notwithstanding the ability of organising hunts to stage subsequent fixtures. This has put increased importance on the relatively small number of Hunter Chases run under Rules at which horses can qualify for a place at Cheltenham or Aintree.This will now be exacerbate...

If the loss of the only Barbury Point-to-Point fixture remaining this season through the lockdown has got racing fans down, the news has thankfully not spread to Marlborough's racing yards, which continue to flourish in this arduous winter.  After a Christmas period where the spotlight largely shone elsewhere, Barbury and Ogbourne Maizey were once again the focus of attention at Kempton and ...
