CANACORD HUNTER CHASE

PLANNING YOUR HORSES PROGRAMME FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON

The Hunter Chase at Worcester on Friday 25th May has been a feature of this evening meeting since it was created in its current form back in 2010.

The race has always been run under the Hargreave Hale banner but this year it will be run under Canacord sponsorship.

Unfortunately after a sustained period of sponsorship, this will be the last race run in co-operation with those businesses and the West Midlands Point-to-Point Secretaries Association would like to put on record their thanks for their generosity over the years.

The full details of the race are outlined below
