CANCELLED - Andoversford Races 2020
Fixture cancelled for 2020
Sunday April 5th 2020.
Gates open 10.30am
Join us for a great family day out at Andoversford, one of the county's most enduring sporting fixtures. Arrive early to enjoy the dog agility, and to browse the trade stands or to walk the course. Our pony racing starts at noon, and the valuable racing programme gets underway at 2pm.
Racing runs in the blood of any Gloucestershire resident, but did you know there are 8 racecourses in the county, and not just one in Cheltenham? The other 7 stage single Point-to-Point fixtures each year, comprising 6 or 7 steeplechases that hark back to the first recorded cross country steeplechase in Tipperary in 1784.
The best known of these is Andoversford Races, on Sunday April 5th 2020, which stages the most valuable fixture of its genre in the UK, built around the Robert Hitchins Group Andoversford Grand Annual Chase, a race subsequently awarded to the Cheltenham Festival. In recent years, the event has grown into a full blown celebration of the countryside and horses, with pony racing, a tent-pegging tournament, hedgelaying, dog agility and photography exhibition as well as loads of shops. It's a grand day out for all the family.
