BERKELEY HUNT POINT TO POINT
The next Berkeley Hunt Point to Point meeting is 28th April 2018.
Situated in the picturesque countryside of the Berkeley Vale and with the 12th century Berkeley Castle providing a backdrop to the course, Berkeley Point to Point is one of the most prestigious point to points of the annual calendar.
Held at Woodford, close to junction 14 of the M5, the point to point has been in its present location since 1947, when an appeal was made for funds to stage the first fixture. This was a controversial step at the time, given the shortages of the early post war years.
Course costs were a major issue then and the fences have continued to be the single most significant cost, in staging the event. However, this attention to detail ensures plenty of runners, for the racing enthusiast or amateur punter.
In recent years , the fixture has attracted subsequent Cheltenham Festival winners and been used as a spring board to launch the careers of leading trainers and jockeys, including Paul Nicholls, Sam Twiston Davies and Daryl Jacob.
