A Dedicated Club For Horse Racing Enthusiasts
THE SOUTH WEST RACING CLUB
Trips and Stable Visits
Members Club Days
Our Local Racecourses
The Club was founded in the 1970s by a group of horse racing enthusiasts. Members benefit from newsletters, trips and stable visits in both the UK and abroad. Our trips are mainly NH based due to our geographical location, but flat racing trips are considered. If you are interested in becoming a member, please use the email address in the contact us section below. Membership is £15 for a calendar year (Jan to Dec). We have members of all ages and from all walks of life, who all share the same common interest and passion for the sport of horse racing.
Updated 11th July 2021
No new trips are currently scheduled due to COVID-19. We hope to have news of events from the Autumn of 2021 onwards, in the coming weeks.
Details of more trips to be posted once arranged.
Trip costs include coach travel and racecourse admission unless stated otherwise, and in the case of international trips, will normally include hotels and transport. Please check the full details on the booking form. These are members only trips, so if not already, you will need to join. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward you an application form.
Pick up points for coach travel are normally Newton Abbot Racecourse, Exeter Services M5, J27 M5 Tiverton Services, and J25 M5 Taunton Harvester.
