AGA continues as National Ladies’ Open Point-to-Point Race Series sponsor in 2014 with the introduction of an exciting new National Championship for owners

Lady riders and owners throughout the UK will be chasing two fantastic prizes during the new season as the championship for lady riders will be complemented by a brand new national championship for owners of open horses (Mens, Ladies or Mixed). The prize for the winner of both championships will be a brand new AGA cooker – a Dual Control for the winning owner (100% AGA, up to half the running costs), and a Total Control for the winning lady rider – with the winners announced during the evening of our prestigious series final, which is again being held at Stratford-on-Avon racecourse. Innovation is once again at the forefront of our sponsorship and along with the new championship we will also have some fabulous new prizes for the owner and lady rider who are successful in AGA qualifiers.

David Simpson from AGA said – “The point-to-point community and AGA are natural partners and this will be a fourth successive season as sponsor of the AGA Ladies’ Open Point-to-Point Race Series Championship, with the AGA name now synonymous with Ladies Point-to-Point racing. Therefore, the introduction of the national championship for owners will allow us to broaden our reach and engage with many people who will be AGA owners, but who may not be aware of the new generation of electric AGA cookers. We are eagerly anticipating the new season and looking forward to continuing our partnership with point-to-point racing. There have been three AGA finals and each one has produced a thrilling finish – we will be hoping for a similar result this season!”Last season’s leading owner David Brace had this to say about the new owners championship “Fantastic, amazing, brilliant, wonderful – we’ll be chasing it hard!”
