2018 at Balcormo Races
We are excited to have made some great new innovations to the races for 2018. This year we are delighted to host the Northern Area Feature Race with a first prize of £1000 to the winner. This race will be a Mixed Open race, so open to both lady and gentlemen riders. We have added an Intermediate Race to our card, and continue to hold the 2.5m Race which will be a Point-to-Point Owners and Riders Association (PPORA) Race, supporting the participants in Point-to-Pointing.
For the third year running Bruce Farms have rolled up their Bonus to £3,000. This is on offer to any runner at Balcormo who then goes on to win the Bruce Farms Hunterchase at Perth in May.
We continue to run three pony races, Two Opens at 148cm and 138cm, and a Novice 148cm race, with a trophy to the best 128cm pony.
Reviews from 2017
Terrierman: “Credit to Fife huge crowd perfect ground pity trainers don’t trust the ground and bring their horses”
Wee Borderer: “They always make a great job of watering at Fife. So disappointing for them that more people don’t support them and run their horses”
Tracy Turner: “Thank you to fife for a great meeting. Safe ground and an excellent idea giving owners trainers and jockeys tickets for their own hot meal, snacks drinks etc. You don’t get hospitality like that anywhere else.”
Poor Payed Groom: “Brilliant day at the fife point to point perfect hospitality and a fun day for my 3 year old 🙂 Ground very safe always made to feel very welcome”
Steven: “Spoke to a couple of the jockeys today and they said the ground was spot on. Glad they were rewarded for all their efforts with a large crowd if not with a big turn out of runners”
graysoncolumn: “Superb day out again, and you’ll struggle to find ground as good as that in the course of a whole season. A joy to see One for Arthur, too. gc”
lordanthony31: “very impressed with the young Bradburne boy on Push the Button in the pony race”
