A great day’s racing for all the family

Sunday April 7th is a date to put in your diary straightaway, as the annual Andoversford Races takes centre stage in rural Gloucestershire. Join us for the most valuable racing programme of the Point-to-Point season, built around the Robert Hitchins Group Andoversford Grand Annual Chase, a race first run here in 1834!

Our enthusiasm for racing doesn’t stop with steeplechasing however. As an aperitif, the RE Resource Group Lamb National will conclude Grand National weekend and there’s pony and ferret racing as well.

Buy your tickets now and save money. It’s sooner than you think!
