Special / Notes
With Covid-19 restrictions still in place the Flete Park Races Point-To-Point is going ahead, but is required to run behind closed doors. However the fixture will be providing a Live Stream of the meeting's racing.

A PDF racecard which is ideal for use on a second device or print out will be available for download at: https://pointingdc.co.uk/live/

We are planning to live stream all 11 remaining Devon & Cornwall area fixtures this season, but in a time where the pandemic has impacted incomes this incurs a considerable ongoing cost. If you are able to, you can help us continue to live stream our Point-To-Points by purchasing the Pay To View tickets for our Point-To-Points.
Cost
£10 per livestream

Join us from Flete Park, near Plymouth in England where we bring you a six race card from the fourth 2021 Devon & Cornwall fixture of the resumed Point-To-Point season. See if you can see any future Equine or Human horse racing stars. The action starts at 14:00 with the members race, with the other races scheduled at 35 minute intervals. The programme will be presented by Cornelius Lysaght, formerly the BBC's voice of racing together with Grade 1 winning jockey Liz Kelly, and they are joined by Donna Harris and Simon Nott.

 

A ticket for the live stream costs £10 and the live stream will be exclusively available through Eventbrite.

The point to point race days at Flete draw some of the biggest crowds of horses and spectators in the South West point to point calendar. They provide an exceptional day both for racing enthusiasts, and families wishing to enjoy a spring Saturday out in the country.

As well as six or seven races to enjoy, there are a number of stalls selling country clothing, dog accessories, jewellery and local handicrafts, as well as a hog roast, beer tent, pizzas and doughnut stall. In addition, many people choose to entertain family and friends with huge picnics accompanied by strawberries and bubbly.

The point to point also provides an opportunity for a light-hearted flutter with one of the bookies located near the paddock. Between races, people can take the opportunity to explore the beautiful landscape of Flete Park, and helpful stewards are on hand to ensure everyone’s safety.

Well behaved dogs are welcome as long as they are kept under control off the course during races.
