DAIRY PARTNERS WEST MIDLAND OPEN RACE CHAMPIONSHIP 2020/2021

The West Midland Area P.P.S.A. is grateful to Dairy Partners who are offering £1000 to the horse that scores the most points in a series of 28 races, commencing at the Ledbury fixture at Maisemore Park on Sunday 25th October and finishing at the Albrighton & Woodland (South) meeting on Monday 31st May 2021.

The Championship is open to ANY HORSE running in these qualifying events which includes all the Mens, Ladies and Mixed Opens which take place in the Area plus other selected events (See the list of qualifying races below).
Points in these qualifying races are – 1st – 7 points/2nd – 5 points/3rd – 3 points/4th – 1 point

Last year The Gwillam’s Annual Hunter Chase at Worcester in May, provided an additional opportunity for horses to bolster their chances of securing this prize. This race has been restricted to horses qualified with West Midlands packs, but was extended so whichever Hunt your horse was qualified with you are eligible to run if your horse finishes 1st or 2nd in one of the 28 nominated races.
Scoring for Hunter Chase – 1st – 12 points/2nd – 7 points/3rd – 5 points/4th – 3 points.
Due to Corona Virus 2021 meetings under N.H. Rules have yet to be ratified, so in these exceptional circumstances if this meeting takes place points as identified above will be added to individual totals, if the meeting fails to take place only points scored in the 28 qualifying races will be used to decide the overall winner

BRIAN ARMSTRONG CHAMPION NOVICE HORSE AWARD

This perpetual Trophy is awarded to the Champion Novice Horse in the Wessex and West Midlands Areas.

First awarded in 2019, it is presented (with a memento) at the Annual Awards event in the winner’s Area. The trophy perpetuates the former Western Daily Press Young Horse Award first awarded in the 1990s.

To be eligible to score points a horse:

  •  Must be qualified with a Hunt affiliated to the Wessex or West Midlands Areas
  •  Must have run in a Maiden race in the current Point-to-Point Season.

SCORING

Points can be scored in any Point-to-Point race or hunter chase in G.B. up to the close of the Wessex or West Midlands Point-to-Point season (whichever is the later).

Scoring: 10 pts for 1st, and (except in Maiden P-t-P races) 6 pts for 2nd, and 3 pts for 3rd

In the case of a dead heat, the points for the particular position shall be added to that of the next position and divided equally between those involved.

This Award is for horses yet to win a Maiden that are qualified in the West Midland and Wessex Areas
