Point-to-Point racing represents the grass roots of the sport you see enacted at Cheltenham, Ascot and Aintree. Young horses and riders cut their teeth on our country racecourses before graduating to the big time. These are venues where you can look back and say, “I saw him/her there first”.
Join us then to enjoy this most British of sports across the heartland of the sport in the West Mercian area. Covering fixtures from early November to the end of May, our 17 fixtures span five counties from Wrexham to south Gloucestershire, and from Ludlow in Shropshire to Paxford on the Gloucestershire-Warwickshire border.
Our friendly family-oriented events provide fiercely competitive racing, and consistently throw up leaders of the sport’s future: Sam Twiston-Davies, Fergal O’Brien, Conor Brace and Lilly Pinchin, to mention just a few, and the latest recruit to the conditional ranks, Alice Stephens.
Our latest season is now in preparation for launch this November at Knightwick, and you can take advantage of an autumn offer to become a Season Ticket holder, affording you entry to all 17 fixtures for just £130. Follow this link to get the best value in our sport.
Our site is constantly updated with fixtures, going reports from each course in their lead-up, plus previews, results and reviews from individual meetings, whilst you can buy tickets too. It is run on behalf of the West Mercian Point-to-Point Secretaries Association on behalf of its participants and spectator followers.
