Coronavirus: Tedworth Hunt’s 2021 Barbury point-to-point cancelled
The Tedworth Hunt point-to-point meeting at Barbury Racecourse, scheduled for 11 April 2021, has been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organisers took the early decision to scrap the fixture with concerns over its financial viability due the uncertainty whether crowds would able to attend and whether meetings would go ahead at all.
This year's fixture, which was due to feature the Tedworth Gold Cup, also fell victim to Covid-19 - with financial losses incurred.
Molly King is the meeting secretary: "It is a disappointment to all involved that we cannot run the Tedworth point-to-point this season, especially as last season’s had to be cancelled as well. It was decided to sit this season out and return bigger and better next season."
