Come racing back to Andoversford

Thanks for attending this year's two fixtures at Andoversford which saw racing return after a pandemic - induced 3 year hiatus. Big crowds attended for some exciting racing and a visit by racing royalty in the guise of champion trainer Paul Nicholls, enjoying the success of emerging novice rider and daughter Olive. 

Our summer is spent planning how best to improve on this enduring set of events, and we welcome your feedback how best to achieve this and make our sport sustainable in a very challenging economic environment. 

It's an advantage that neither fixture is just about racing! Both meetings are a lusty celebration of everything that is good about the Cotswolds and the rural lifestyle. You can rely on dog shows, pony racing to find the next A P McCoy, and loads of shops to keep you and your family occupied throughout the day. Come armed with a picnic for trackside viewing, or contact us re hospitality options. 

And if you can't wait until April, you can purchase Gift Vouchers, offering entry to all 21 fixtures in the newly enlarged West Mercian Point-to-Point Area, stretching from Didmarton to Knutsford and from Chipping Campden to Ludlow. Look out for us too at Moreton Show on Saturday September 3rd. 

Meantime, our latest news section is full of the successes of our local horsemen, so keep up to date and enjoy the summer!



Enjoy your racing, and come and visit us soon!

Todays' news that the football results will no longer be broadcast on BBC's Sports Report each Saturday is like the final departure of a much-loved pet. You don't need to be a footie fan to have enjoyed the dulcet tones of James Alexander Gordon, or to join in the guess work of the likely scoreline in each match based on his intonation.  Many is the fan who has imitated Gordon and his succes...

The Aintree Grand National each April is a unique race, the ultimate test of a thoroughbred steeplechase over nearly 4 1/2m and 30 fences. Even after all its modifications in the face of public pressure, it remains a race like no other. Yet it faces a veritable army of imposters, credited with the Grand National prefix. Internationally, the Liverpool original has no peers as the world’s gre...
