About Us

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.
