Wincanton Racecourse to sponsor Young Horse Championship
The Wessex Point-to-Point Area is delighted to announce a new sponsorship agreement with Wincanton Racecourse for the 2017/2018 season.
Point-to-Pointing is the grassroots of National Hunt racing with both young horses and jockeys starting their careers in the Point-to-Point circuit before progressing into the professional arena.
Wincanton Racecourse has recognised the importance of the link between Point-to-Pointing and NH Racing and have announced an award to the leading horse who at the start of the 2017/2018 point –to-point season has not won any race and then wins a Maiden race at any of the first 20 meetings to be held at Wessex meetings throughout the season . Once the Maiden victory has been secured points will then be awarded during 2018 for wins and placings in other races during the season with extra points being gained from Hunter Chase successes and placings.
The connections of the winning Horse will be invited to Ladies Day at Wincanton Racecourse on Tuesday 15th May for a presentation and the opportunity for the winning horse to be paraded during the day.
