Marchand Petit Proud to Sponsor Races at Buckfastleigh P2P

Spring had well and truly sprung on Sunday 13th March 2016, heralding a wonderful day of Point-to-Point horse racing at the popular historic course of Buckfastleigh.

Marchand Petit is proud to have sponsored the very popular pony races. With 13 riders in the two races and good going the atmosphere was electric. With three quarters of the mile long circuit to cover, the miniature jockeys (ranging from 10 years to 15) urged their miniature ’thoroughbreds’ on, finishing with a thrilling sprint across the line.

Rosettes for all and treats for the ponies rounded off a most entertaining afternoon. Trophies and prizes were presented by Justine Andrews, Marketing Manager for Marchand Petit and Kirsty Cook, Branch Manager of Dartmouth. Also in attendance was Angela Bassett, Senior Negotiator from the Totnes branch enjoying a thoroughly good day out, as Point-to-Point horse racing proves to be.

At Marchand Petit we are working to adapt our business to meet the daily challenges during these challenging times.As a company we are committed to providing an exceptional service as normal, however in light of recent government guidelines we have made the decision to restrict public access to our branches.


To adapt to these new guidelines a number of key workers will continue to work remotely to ensure business will continue as normal by email and phone until further notice. Please call your local branch or department number to speak to a member of our team. Click here for a list of branch numbers. We would like to thank you all for your understanding during these unprecedented times and we will continue to update you.
