PAXFORD RACES

North Cotswold Hunt
Point to Point

Paxford Races Auction of Promises
Sponsored by Jackson-Stops Chipping Campden
CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE AUCTION
First run in 1903 the North Cotswold's Point to Point had a pretty good run, only stopped by World Wars! Then a couple of freak weather years and the dreaded Covid meant we lost out on 2 of the last 3 Easter meetings at Paxford. Like Arnold Schwarzeneger "we will be back!" - on 18/4/22. In the meantime we need to raise a little money.
So some of our best friends have donated fantastic prizes for an Auction of Promises to be held during October. We've got some of the greatest names and places in racing up for bid, top class trout fishing, a Holiday Cottage stay in lovely Chipping Campden, International Test Match Polo, Hunting of course and more! 


Please check us out at jumblebee.co.uk/paxfordracesauctionofpromises , make a bid or two and most importantly tell all your friends by  forwarding this email or you can share any of the 19 Lots on Facebook and Twitter"

 

Thank you
NCH Point to Point Committee.

The course opened in 1997 thanks to the generosity of hunt stalwart Geoff Adams, and provides an excellent days entertainment for the whole family, with good views of the race course, betting facilities, picnic spaces, hound displays, trade stands, bars, food stalls, hospitality and children’s amusements.

Runners start with their back to the stream and jump one fence before taking a right-handed turn into home straight where they jump fence two. They race past the winning post to meet fence three before turning right handed and running slightly downhill where the course flattens out and the runners meet fences four, five and six. They disappear momentarily behind the rhubarb sheds before turning right-handed towards fences seven and eight. Immediately after fence eight they race briefly slightly right handed before straightening up and racing past the start to negotiate fence nine. There is a short run to the last fence from the final bend so it is crucial to get the inside line between penultimate and last fences.
