Friars Haugh qualifier

CULMINATING in what is sure to be an exciting hunter chase final at Cheltenham on May 4, the AGA Ladies’ Open Point-to-Point Championship will see riders competing in a series of 28 qualifying races during the 2010/11 season.

And the next qualifier takes place on Sunday, January 30, at the Jedforest course at Friars Haugh in Kelso.

Heather Kemp, board member responsible for sponsorship and PR at the Point-to-Point Authority – the sport’s organising body, said: “We are thrilled to see the ladies’ series back up and running and it’s great to have such a prestigious sponsor as AGA.”

AGA chief executive William McGrath said: “The championship offers a chance to celebrate the achievements of women riders and we’re very excited to be involved.”
