Midlands meetings 2023

Horse Racing at Dingley

The provisional fixture list is out and there are a few changes in the schedule for Midlands Pointing.

The season will start in January with the Revesby Races meeting taking the place of the Midlands Area Club fixture on 21st January.

The PPA would like the scoring for the season championships to finish in time for the traditional Stratford Hunter Chase evening which means a few changes at the end of the season.

The Melton Hunt Club meeting, usually held at the end of May, moves to the 5th February. The Meynell and South Staffs fixture will not take place in 2023.
