Welcome to Higham Races
With three annual Point-To-Point fixtures, Higham Races makes a fabulously fun and social countryside day out. Tradestands and food a plenty, with fairground attractions for the whole family at Easter. Not forgetting the pony racing and more recently the charity 'Side Saddle Dash', all adding to the equestrian entertainment. For those that like a flutter Higham Races has a number of traditional bookies on-site.
Each year the Higham Races committee nominates an annual charity to support for all three fixtures. The 2021/2022 season lends our support to the Injured Jockeys Fund who provide such invaluable help to those involved in racing.
Higham features a flat oval course comprising eight fences jumped twice, and the home straight jumped three times providing many exciting finishes. It suits those horses that like to front run. The gravelly soil means the course can run early on in the year when other venues are waterlogged – the ground is rarely softer than Good. The course benefits from an irrigation facility close by so can easily be watered for meetings later in the season.
Racing returns to Higham this Winter, as do spectators. We're delighted to be welcoming race goers back to Higham, with tickets going on sale this October.
