Latest News

A small but select field of six lined up for a feature race of the year, the Fitzdares Peterborough Chase back on 5th December. First Flow, who provided Kim Bailey with his second winner of the race following on from Charbel in 2019, proved that he wasn’t hostage to testing ground as he stayed on strongly to deny Funambule Sivola by four-and-a-half lengths. He is already a Grade 1 winner having taken the Clarence House Chase at Ascot in January 2021 and he will return to the Berkshire venue to defend his crown in the hotly anticipated event against Shishkin and Energumene.

On the same card, the highly touted Balco Coastal, trained by Nicky Henderson, made an impressive winning hurdling debut. He has subsequently followed up at Ludlow and his trainer has identified our £30,000 Sidney Banks Memorial Novices’ Hurdle (Listed) on 10th February, en-route to the Cheltenham Festival, as his next target. The Seven Barrows handler has won the race twice, most recently with Shishkin in 2020. 

 

Our first feature race of 2022, the £25,000 Chatteris Fen Juvenile Hurdle, was won in a driving finish by the Gary Moore-trained Kotmask, who has now won both starts for the yard. Whilst still green, he battled well to deny Collingham by a neck and there will be more to come from this four-year-old in the future.

 

The £75,000 Lady Protectress Mares’ Chase has quickly become established as one of the leading mares’ races since first being staged in 2016 and we are likely to see some of the leading mares’, from both Britain and Ireland, line-up on 28th January. On the same afternoon, there will be further clues as we stage the latest Pertemps Qualifier over 3m1f. The first six will qualify for the Final on the third day of Cheltenham. 

 

Alongside the aforementioned Sidney Banks on 10th February, we stage another £30,000 prize, the Racing TV Handicap Hurdle over 2m3½f. This race is always well-supported and an increase in prize money for this season will hopefully provide another competitive renewal. 

 

Our busy period continues with another four fixtures staged between 24th February and 24th March before our annual Easter Monday highlight on 18th April. 

 

Don’t forget that our usual Spring Bank Holiday Monday fixture at the end of May has been moved for this year only to the Bank Holiday on Friday 3rd June to coincide with the celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

I am pleased to say that excellent progress has been made on reinstating our facilities after the flood damage of last winter. Though there is still much work to do, we have been able to reopen most of our indoor facilities to provide some respite from the cold! We are grateful for your continued patience while these works are completed.

Your Annual Badge package includes free entry to the following racecourses on these specific days upon presentation of your 2021 Huntingdon Metal Badge.

 

Reciprocals are correct at the time of print to the best of our knowledge: they are subject to change and further dates will be confirmed at a later date as some racecourses are still reviewing their own annual membership packages. Please check the website for updates or call the Huntingdon Office on 01480 453373.

 

Please also contact the individual racecourse prior to your visit regarding parking, areas you may access, use of private boxes, restaurant offers and reservations etc.
