Cheltenham Racecourse

SMILE... THE MAGIC STARTS HERE

 

join cheltenham racecourse for three days of excellent racing at the home of jump racing

Situated just minutes from the picturesque Cotswolds, Cheltenham Racecourse is the perfect location to embrace the best that the countryside has to offer. 

 

Held on Friday 16 November this year, Countryside Day launched The November Meeting and was a celebration of the rural landscape. Alongside the incredible racing action, there was a host of countryside interests to keep you entertained from side saddle demonstrations to hound parades.

 

Post racing, there was a chance to pick up a future star in the Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham November Sale. After the racing, young prospects from the point-to-point field went under the hammer and more than £3.7million is cleared in just over two hours. 

 

The November Meeting featuring the BetVictor Gold Cup on Saturday 17 November is a real autumnal treat and provides one of the most exciting racedays of the season. A mix of experts, enthusiasts and novice racegoers made for a compelling atmosphere, perfect for groups and celebrations. 

 

Day Three of The November Meeting, held on Sunday 18 November saw Gloucestershire and the racing community mark the end of World War One centenary with a number of special activities, including military parades, demonstrations, and tributes, honouring those who fought, died and survived the Great War.
