8th April 2019 - Sandon is in fantastic condition and was rolled and harrowed a month ago. Now the fences are out and yesterday the course was rolled again with a Cambridge roller and looks wonderful in the sunshine.
We have received 6 entries for the Side-Saddle race, which looks to be an exciting addition to our day.

The North Staffordshire Hunt Point-to-Point is a highlight of the area's social and sporting calendar with several thousand attending annually. The event on Easter Saturday is a superb day out for all the family. Dating from 1752 the sport operates under the regulation of the Point-to-Point Authority. Held at the picturesque Sandon Hall Estate near Stafford, point-to-point racing is packed with thrills and spills as horses and riders tackle substantial fences at top speed over a challenging 3-mile course.
Some of the finest horses in the country have begun their careers point-to-pointing and there is always the possibility of seeing a Grand National winner of the future. Professional bookmakers will be on hand to take bets.
The unique layout of the course at Sandon means that all racegoers have a superb view of the course from the grassy banks, which form a natural amphitheatre. Entertainment, both on and off the track, is tailored for all ages with attractions including trade stalls, refreshments, a licensed bar and children’s funfair rides. Many people choose to take their own picnic to lunch whilst watching the action.
In 2019 the North Staffs Point-to-Point are very proud to have been chosen yet again to hold the NW Area Feature Race for the Scally Muire Trophy. We are also pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Side-Saddle race - to take place at 5.40pm. Please see details attached Side Saddle Notice, and Side Saddle Entry Form
There are a wide range of reserved parking, sponsorship opportunities and hospitality packages on offer, which will guarantee an extra special and great value day out for customers, friends and family. Tickets are available for the Reception and Buffet Luncheon in the Sponsors' Marquee.
This year’s event will be held on Easter Saturday 20th April 2019 at Sandon Estate near Stone. Gates open at 11.00 a.m. and the first race is due at 1.00 p.m. Everyone is welcome and entry is being charged at £40.00 per car, for 2 or more occupants, or £20.00 for single occupancy.
