Going Report

A Going Report will be posted here 7 days before the meeting.

Owners & Trainers

We are delighted to welcome Owners, Keepers & Riders to Andoversford. There’s little to match the experience of owning a racehorse, but it’s a rollercoaster of delight and disappointment. Just getting to the parade ring is an achievement in itself, before a race has even been run.

At Andoversford races, we understand what it takes to train and ride Pointers and Chasers, and we’ll make every effort to ensure your day fulfils expectations.

Entries

Entries for each of the six races close on Monday April 2. Owners declared to run in the Andoversford Grand Annual Chase and Ladies Open will be refunded their entry money. 

Owners & Riders' admission

Tickets for owners will be forwarded electronically at the 5 day stage, or by surface mail. Owners are provided with 4 admissions per entry. Riders should show their current Rider's Certificate at the entrance, which will admit the Rider only. Guests will be charged for admission. Requests for additional arrangements should be made through the Contact form elsewhere on the web site. 

Course

Andoversford is an undulating course with a stiff uphill finish. The fences are well built and not for the faint-hearted, and the run down the back straight’s four downhill fences has caught out many a rider in the past sitting too far up his horse’s neck!

The course has been admirably looked after by former Clerk of the Course Kim Bailey, who also trains 60 horses under Rules in his spare time, and now by Tony Howland. Parking for Owners, Keepers, & Riders is best effected from the Kennels entrance to the course where dedicated parking is assigned to you. Horse boxes also park here, nice and close to the Paddock.

There’s a strong betting market, and it is possible to see the entire course from the highest point, but best from the inside of the course with a view of the final 3 fences.
