Fixtures are set, and planning is already well advanced for this winter's annual Avon Vale Races, this year on Sunday December 18th at Larkhill Racecourse, near Amesbury.

With the summer over, and newspapers full of stories about tightening our belts, the eclectic appeal of a simple day's outdoors entertainment in one of the world's oldest and simplest sports never held such a strong appeal. Forget your  cost-of-living woes and immerse yourself in the well-regarded and much-loved tradition of a day at the races.

The Avon Vale fixture, and Larkhill at large, justifiably hold an excellent record in identifying budding trainers, riders, and indeed young horses of the future. This is a fixture about which you can say in the future, I saw him/her here first". 

Whilst Spring sunshine is no longer a prospect with our midwinter fixture, quality racing most certainly is, delivered on Larkhill's traditionally beautifully prepared turf.  Come and enjoy best of class amateur steeplechasing at the sport's best known venue.
