Horse and Jockey at the Duke of Buccleuch’s Point to Point.


The Duke of Buccleuch Point to Point is coming up this weekend. It’s a highlight in our social calendar and you’ll see us there wrapped up in our finest tweed and warmest Dubarrys – especially if this cold snap persists, which we’re hoping it doesn’t.


The Jed Forest Point to Point had to be cancelled and rescheduled at Friars Haugh on 24 February, so it would be a great pity if the same fate befell the Duke of Buccleuch event.


We will be sponsoring The A Hume Bladen Maiden Open race alongside our friends from Bladen.

If you’re coming along, or feel tempted by a stomp around in picturesque surrounds, or indeed, a bit of a flutter and want to avail yourself of little inside chat then get yourself onto Go Pointing – the online home of Point to Point and best place for previews and post event reports.


And, even if you can’t make it to Friars Haugh for the Duke of Buccleuch, there’s still a chance to catch a bit of P-to-P north of the border:


  • Lanarkshire & Renfrewshire and Eglinton at Overton, Lanarkshire on 23 March;
  • Berwickshire, back at Friars Haugh on Easter Sunday, 30 March;
  • Fife at Balcormo Mains, Fife on Saturday 27 April
  • And the last of fixture of the season is Lauderdale, at Mosshouses, Selkirkshire on Sunday 5 May, where A Hume will again be sponsoring a race.
