Irish welcome at Barbury International P2P

Irish welcome at Barbury International P2P

Barbury Racecourse is set to stage the second Barbury International Point-to-Point on Saturday January 20th 2018, following successful amendments to the rules of the sport that facilitated the inaugural fixture last January.

The valuable fixture, supported by a prize fund of £5,750, is the most valuable Point-to-Point fixture in the UK calendar, supporting 7 races with no race worth less than £750, and prize money to fourth place. In addition, the two feature races are both worth £1,000 apiece – one a Mixed open, the other a 3m4f contest for 10 years olds and over.

Led by Barbury Racing Club Chairman Nigel Bunter and bloodstock agent David Minton, the fixture aims to encourage handlers of young horses on both sides of the Irish Sea to educate and nurture their young stock through the Point-to-Point field.

The seven race programme which can be viewed below caters for all ages of horses and also includes a Point-to-Point bumper.
