by Point-to-Point Racing Company Ltd Staff
All roads will lead to Stratford-on-Avon racecourse on Friday 7th June, 2013, with the news that AGA have moved their Ladies Championship final to the same evening that already boasts the W&S Recycling Stratford Foxhunters Champion Hunters' Chase (for the Horse and Hound Cup), and the Champion Novices' Hunters' Chase for the John Corbet Cup, sponsored by pointtopoint.co.uk.
The prestigious AGA Ladies final will be the third Championship Hunter Chase to be run on this popular evening; all of them with substantial prize money attached - £53,000 in total for the three races.
David Simpson, AGA's Commercial Business Development Manager said: "I am absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Stratford Racecourse for our Final on 7th June, 2013. I attended the meeting last year, and it seemed as if the whole of the Point to Point and Hunter Chase population had turned out. Our race, which will be run over 3 miles and 4 furlongs, will add yet another class Championship Hunter Chase to an already exciting card."
Stephen Lambert, Stratford Clerk of the Course and MD stated: "The AGA final is a perfect fit for this meeting. 4 top class Hunter Chases and 3 valuable Handicaps for professional riders will provide a supreme mix of excellence both for the Point to Point world and the racing public. AGA's 34 Point to Point qualifiers will further strengthen the relationship between hunt racing and Stratford's championship day."
