THE TORRINGTON FARMERS POINT-TO-POINT RACES TAKES PLACE AT CHAPELTON BARTON, NEAR UMBERLEIGH, NORTH DEVON ON SATURDAY 14TH JUNE 2014
THE grand finale of this year’s British point-to-point season takes place on Saturday (June 14th) at Chapelton Barton, near Umberleigh, North Devon.
The Torrington Farmers have the honour of bringing down the curtain in their traditional festive atmosphere after six and a half action packed months. A total of 93 entries have been received for the six races and the course will be agrivated as necessary to provide the best possible jumping ground.
Following the concluding point-to-point race at 5.20pm are the Devon & Cornwall Area Finals for ponies under 138cm and under 148cm. These races are sponsored byHatchmoor Veterinary Practice. Pony racing has already revealed dozens of future professional jockeys and spotting them is all part of the fun. This is not quite all because the announcements of the local and National champions take place after racing – usually under a shower of champagne.
This meeting always presents a real party farewell to the season. For those without picnics, quality hot and cold refreshments are available on course, together with a licenced bar and trade stands.
Entrance costs £10 for pedestrians; £10 for a car and driver; £20 for a car, driver and one passenger, and £30 above that. The post code is EX37 9EB, and the course is located 5 miles south east of Barnstaple, just off the A377.
