Cheltenham Racecourse

Friday 15th November 2019

day one of the November meeting

countryside day


Friday 15th NOVEMBER 2019

The November Meeting commences with Friday featuring Countryside Day, a tradition dating back over two decades where money is raised for the Countryside Alliance and Racing Welfare.


Held on Friday 15th November, Countryside Day launches The November Meeting and is a celebration of the rural landscape. Alongside the incredible racing action, there’s a host of countryside interests to keep you entertained, from sheep herding demonstrations to hound parades, as well as the popular shopping village – the perfect place to pick up Christmas gifts or a new look for The Festival™ presented by Magners in March.


Countryside Day hosted a stellar six race card, featuring the Glenfarclas Cross Country race won in fine style by Cheltenham favourite Josies Orders. The JP McManus owned-horse is a four-time winner over the cross country fences here at Cheltenham, and did not disappoint in the first cross country race of the season. Bun Doran got his season off to a winning start for local trainer Tom George and jockey Paddy Brennan in the BetVictor Handicap Chase.


This year’s raceday looks set to be as exciting as ever with a number of different Countryside themed events taking place before and during racing.
