Conditions Series

The aim of the Conditions’ Series is to encourage children to make the step up from Point-to-Point pony racing and into the Charles Owen Racecourse Series.

The Charles Owen Conditions Races are for individual children or ponies who have not been placed (1st – 4th) in any Charles Owen Final in the previous 2 years (2018 and 2019). The aim of the Series is to allow novice combinations to start competing in the Charles Owen Series. The races are run as any other Charles Owen pony race and points won count towards both the Conditions Final and the Charles Owen Final. This season points will be awarded as follows:  6 points for a win, 4 points for second, 2 points for third and 1 point for fourth.


These are the dates of the 2019 season Conditions Fixtures:

  • Fakenham 2 June 2019
  • Market Rasen 7 July 2019
  • Haydock 20 July 2019
  • Great Yarmouth 8 August 2019
  • Lingfield 19 August 2019
  • Chepstow 26 August 2019
  • York 8 September 2019

The first 2 placed combinations automatically qualified for the Conditions’ Finals. The next 4 combinations with the most points qualified for a place in the Conditions’ Finals. The winner of each Conditions’ Races could not compete in another Conditions’ race until the Conditions’ Finals.

Penalties will be carried in the Conditions’ Final.

All those riding in Conditions Races gained points for the prestigious Charles Owen Finals at the end of the season and the Rose Bengal Awards.

Fixtures for the 2020 season will be published shortly.
