Brian Crawford - Clerk of the Course

I am busy getting Garthorpe ready for the first of five fixture in 2019 – The Cottesmore on 24th February, and thought I would tell you about improvements we have made during the winter months.

The course itself is in very good order, and has been vertidrained. Currently the ‘going’ is GOOD.  The ground on the landing side of the downhill fence has also been leveled.

We have purchased some new plastic running rail for the course and all the fences are now portable and in 15ft sections, making it easier to give each meeting fresh ground.

The irrigation system now covers the whole course in one go, so we do not have to move anything when watering is required – Making it even easier to produce safe racing ground

To make it easier for you to get in to Garthorpe we have leveled the Car Park entrances and re-stoned them. The pavilion is iconic with Garthorpe and to keep it watertight for a good number of years to come it has had a new roof.

A warm welcome awaits you at Garthorpe. E-Tickets are available for purchase either from this website or priced at £13. per person or £15 on the Gate. Early Bird discounts are available for all of the meetings at £10 per person up until a month before the fixture. Children/Under 16’s are FREE!

WE look forward to seeing on 24th Feb, 24th March, 28th April, 12th May and 2nd June
