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

Tom & Gina Ellis secured their largest triumph when prevailing in a tight finish to the Randox Foxhunter Chase over Aintree's imposing fences earlier this afternoon.  The 18 fences of the Foxhunter, whose magnificent trophy of a near full size fox should prevent any politically correct removal of the title of the race, are the ultimate challenge for the amateur riders who are the core of...
