A Share in a Race Horse!

After so many years of hosting race goers, the Royal Oak has joined the fray and taken a share in a race horse.  In partnership with Mason-Scudamore racing the Irish bred mare Twenty Eight Guns will give anyone who follows the race game and The Oak added spice.  The 7 year old has 3 wins and a place in her 5 Chasing starts and runs off a mark of 130.  Trained at Michael Scudamore’s yard near Ross on Wye she is the leading winner in the stable so far this year and we hope she will provide fun days out for the owners, staff, customers and friends of the Royal Oak.

What’s On!
