Andoversford Races 2021 - Cancelled

The Race committee have been holding out for news that restrictions would be relaxed enough to allow a return of spectators to Andoversford's fixture in April. Sadly the Government's timetable won't allow this, despite Point-to-Point racing returning behind closed doors from March 29. 

Whilst both the spirit and flesh are willing in this instance to stage a fixture, we feel it's not in the best interests of the hunt or the fixture's long term reputation to stage a hybrid of its former self. With regret, therefore, the fixture will be cancelled for 2021. 

The future looks altogether brighter, but not in time for a majority of the fixtures in the Spring. To those who have qualified with us, or would have run horses, please keep the faith, and to our loyal spectators and volunteers, please slake your thirst for the amateur branch of our sport at another of the myriad of fixtures remaining in the Three Counties, once spectators are given the all-clear to return. 

We will announce a date for 2022 as soon as we're able. Meantime, keep up with the racing news through our news pages, and bask in the success of our local trainers and riders. 

Keep enjoying your racing!

Martin Keighley is a man in a hurry, after he exceeded last year's sum total of winners with a double at Worcester yesterday. Mind you, last season was largely one to forget, but with horses like Pinnacle Peak, an accomplished 14l winner of the concluding handicap hurdle, he can be assured there is more to follow.  Worcester's scenic riverside track has a set of fixtures few would envy - lar...
