Welcome to a new season's racing at Andoversford

It's been a long two seasons since Andoversford last hosted racing, and we're thrilled to be back with two fixtures in 2022 on consecutive weekends in April on Sunday 3rd and 10th. 

The well-established Grand Annual fixture, supported by the Robert Hitchins Group, remains the most valuable Point-to-Point fixture in the entire UK calendar, with prize money in excess of £4,000, and featuring the Robert Hitchins Group Andoversford Grand Annual Chase, first run here in 1834. 

Our second fixture, hosted by the Cotswold Vale Farmers & South Herefordshire, stages a card of novice and veteran rider races sure to entertain and provide plenty of opportunities for the youngsters and enthusiasts who form the backbone of this sport. 

But neither fixture is just about racing! Both meetings are a lusty celebration of everything that is good about the Cotswolds and the rural lifestyle. There will be dog shows and a tent-pegging tournament, 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 indulge yourself with our Sunday lunch menu in trackside hospitality, from just £75pp. 

And if you can't wait until April, you can purchase Gift Vouchers as Christmas Gifts, and a newly launched Season Ticket, 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. At £130, it offers fabulous value in your pursuit of unearthing the next champion - equine or human - on the Point-to-Point field.

Watching the success of Fergal O'Brien, who notched his fiftieth winner of the term at Uttoxeter on Thursday, I was reminded of another pioneer of the sport in Martin Pipe, who would regularly close out a half century of winners before most of his contemporaries had barely got their charges to steady cantering! The half century is a credit to a trainer who is one of life's happy-go-lucky personali...

The recent announcement of the appointment of Jon Pullin as Clerk of the Course at Cheltenham continues a long tradition of choosing former riders in one of the most prestigious roles in British racecourse management. Pullin, a former conditional rider, rode 6 winners from around 130 rides in the late eighties, whilst his predecessor, Simon Claisse rode some 60 Point-to-Point winners. Before that ...

A sweltering July Thursday afternoon is about as far removed from the Point-to-Point experience as you can imagine, but that hasn't stopped Cotswold-based trainers from capitalizing on the infrequent Jump racing fixtures taking place at this time of year, and Worcester, scenicly situated on the banks of the Severn, provided plenty of entertainment and success for our professional handlers yesterda...

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...
