How to get involved

There are several OS Clubs that offer Old Stoics the opportunity to take part in activities of interest or play for OS sports teams to challenge other alumni society teams or play current Stoics.

OS Racing Club

We are delighted to announce that there will be a second Stowe racehorse running in the forthcoming national hunt season. Royal Sunday - a four year old and a winner over hurdles - has recently been purchased by the second Old Stoic Racing Club. He will once again be in training with Old Stoic trainer Alex Hales at his yard just sixteen miles from Stowe near Banbury.

Derby winning trainer, Roger Charlton (Chatham 68) and At The Races and longstanding horse racing presenter Robert Cooper (Cobham 68), have joined as owners and reflect the Stowe’s strong representation across the sport.

To watch a replay of Royal Sunday’s win at Hereford in April please click here

The OSRC is open to all members of the Stowe Community and has two important objectives. The first being comradery among Old Stoics with a common interested in Horse Racing and second, to provide a mechanism through the Racing Club, through a percentage of any prize money won, to make a donation to charity. The designated charity will be chosen by the Racing Club.


The Old Stoic Racing Clubs are now closed for the season.

We are keen to attract younger Old Stoic golfers. All those under 30 qualify for a 50% reduction in the cost of green fees at all meetings and matches.
For the weekend meetings, efforts will also be made to provide free or low cost accommodation.
