Dubarry, the leading Irish country clothing company, is to support an Outstanding Performance Award across this season’s two fixtures at Andoversford, home to the Andoverford Grand Annual Chase. The brand, already involved in racing through the innovative Barbury International meeting in January, is extending its involvement to reach racing enthusiasts in Gloucestershire and surrounding counties.
A panel of judges comprising the West Midlands Area Point-to-Point team and representatives of Dubarry and Andoversford, will judge the outstanding performance of the day by a rider, trainer, owner or breeder from among the 13 races across the two fixtures on Sundays April 8th and 15th.
Laura Egan, for Dubarry UK, remarked,”Andoversford is near our Cheltenham shop, and of course is strong racing territory. We enjoy strong trading from our pop-up store at the Festival, and see many of our customers at point-to-Points across the whole UK. Our association first with Barbury and now with Andoversford, brings us together with the two most valuable fixtures at this level in the UK.”
Peter McNeile, for Andoversford Races, added, “Dubarry is business well rooted in the rural lifestyle adopted by our spectators and participants. These awards add terrific value to the meetings at Andoversford, and are worth as much as the winning prize fund for any race. Together with our very valuable prize funds, these offer further reason to bring horses to Andoversford for competitive and highly enjoyable racing.”
