SATURDAY AT THE CHRISTMAS MEETING

 

With Christmas Extravaganza themed family fun with a Santa's Grotto and superb racing action, this day has it all. Embrace and enjoy the Christmas buzz, with Grade 2 action on the track, providing those all-important Cheltenham Festival clues and an abundance of festive treats – it is the ultimate Christmas sporting day out.

 

With Grade 2 and 3 racing action, including some highly competitive Cheltenham Festival trials, including the JCB Triumph Hurdle trial and the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle trial, it is a key race meeting for Cheltenham Festival clues.

 

In previous years we have had real fans favourites such as The New One, Cogry and Fusils Raffles winning.

 

Make sure you will be there to see, who will be added to the board of honours in 2024?

 

Under 18’s race free and do not require a ticket to enter.
