Oriental Club Owner-Trainer Series
The PPA is thrilled to announce the second season of a race series exclusively for Owner-Trainers, sponsored by the Oriental Club. The Oriental Club is not only providing support to the fixtures but in most cases will once again be providing a hospitality bar, to which all owners and trainers participating at the sponsored fixture are invited (subject to Covid-19 restrictions).
The 18-race series (reduced to 8 races due to Covid lockdown) is deliberately intended to provide a chance for competitive racing for those who have found limited opportunities for their horses above Restricted and Intermediate levels. All horses completing in any race in the series will qualify for the final in 2022 (no final in 2021 due to shortened season), providing they remain eligible.
The series races will be held at the following fixtures (updated March 25 ahead of restart):
|WM||Ledbury||Maisemore Park||25 October 2020|
|SE||Charing Races||Charing||29 March 2021|
