The highest point scorer will be named National Young Horse Champion, and the winning owner will receive a cheque for £1000 thanks to the generosity of our sponsor The Point-To-Point Point Racing Company
Our 2017 – 2018 National Young Horse Champion was Pink Eyed Pedro (GB).
Bred, owned and trained in South Wales by David Brace, Pink Eyed Pedro was ridden to victory on 5 occasions by the Season’s leading novice rider Connor Brace.
This is a contest that regularly produces “horses for the notebook” and we’re eagerly looking forward to watching this season’s leading contenders emerge – and of course following the fortunes of last season’s winners
