THE interest in point to point horse racing meetings at Overton Farm has rocketed since it was first established eight years ago, with crowds of up to 5000 making it the most popular sporting event in Clydesdale.

This Sunday’s Dumfries and Stewartry point to point meeting at the scenic Crossford venue is again expected to draw large crowds for an impressive card of at least six races with the first one at 12.30pm.
