CLIFTON ON TEME – SUNDAY 14th NOVEMBER – FIRST RACE – 12 NOON
This new course proved very popular when the first meeting was staged in April 2018.
Initially the paddock and other facilities were on the outside of the course, but the following year these had been moved into the centre. The size of the fences caused some concerns at the initial meeting but these had been resolved before last years fixture, and entries and visitors to Knightwick Races continued on an upward trend after the course opened in 2018.
The course starts in a shute at the start of the back straight and the runners have a line of three fences as they raced alongside the River Teme. There is then a long sweeping turn into the home straight which runs alongside the A44 and a line of another three fences and the run in to the winning post.
This is followed by another sweeping bend into the back straight where the runners go out to complete the remainder of the race.
