Barbury Season Awards - prizes for riders, keepers & owners

Dubarry Leading Rider Award

Dubarry, the leading Irish country clothing company, is to partner with Barbury Races to support a new Leading Rider Award during the season at Barbury. In addition, the brand will support an Outstanding Performance Award at the Barbury International Point-to-Point on Sunday December 15th 2019.

The Dubarry Leading Rider Award will be adjudged over the 20+ races that comprise the calendar of events, starting with the International meeting in November and concluding at the Tedworth on April 5th. Points will be awarded for winners and placed horses, on the basis of 10pts for a winner, 5pts for a second and 3pts for a third. A point will also be awarded for an unplaced runner. With multiple divisions at both the International and Vine & Craven meetings, there has been plenty of opportunity to get on the scoresheet.

The winning Rider with the most points at the end of the season will receive a voucher to exchange against Dubarry products worth £1,000. Scores for trainers with less than 9pts can be clarified from info@barburyraces.co.uk

The Dubarry Outstanding Performance Award will be presented to the rider or trainer who put up the most outstanding performance at the Barbury International Point-to-Point, judged by a selection panel comprising a representative of Barbury Racecourse, Dubarry and the Point-to-Point press.
