THE STAGE IS SET

 

It's the last chance to witness racing at Cheltenham Racecourse before The Festival™, and that means a superb competitive day of Jump racing.

 

With seven races on the card, it's the time to finalise your choices and favourites, before all roads lead back to Cheltenham in March. 

 

Last year's meeting was sadly abandoned but in 2020 we witnessed an excellent day of racing with names such as Paisley Park and Santini securing victories.

 

There will be a parade of the Welsh Marches Stallions at Chapel Stud in the Parade Ring from 12:00pm - 12:25pm. The parade will include Planteur, Walzertakt and Bangkok.

 

Make sure you head to The Centaur after the last race to see the Bootleg Beatles perform live from 4.30pm - 5.30pm.

 

The Cheltenham January Sale returns to Cheltenham Racecourse on Festival Trials Day and will offer a select group of winning and placed point to pointers and NH form horses. The sale will take place in the sale ring on Cheltenham racecourse after the last race. Lots will be stabled in the Charles Turner yard and available for viewing on Friday 28 January from 2.30pm and on Saturday 29 January from 8.30am.

 

We are delighted to announce that Cheltenham Radio will be back for Festival Trials Day and can be purchased at the Information Point.

 

Please note: We are a cashless venue. On-course betting facilities will take cash and there are cash machines on site.

Correct as of 2021. All information, including sponsors, are to be confirmed.
