On Friday we celebrate the wonderful British Countryside, with beagles and a gun dog show from 11:00 before we have a Parade of Champions at 12:15 in the Parade Ring as we're joined by Countryside Alliance will join us to raise funds for the British Equestrian Team: Mission Paris.
Joe Wheldon will be welcoming guests as Tommy Lewis, The Hipcats and The Lucky 15’s will be entertaining the crowds with their music in between races.
To close what promises to be a cracking day, Rickie and Melvin will be DJ’ing in The Centaur after the last race. So don’t rush off, hang around to enjoy the Radio 1 DJ duo tunes.
Friday also plays host to the Tattersalls Cheltenham November Sale – a live auction after racing. If you have never been to a horse auction, this is a must see event. The atmosphere is tense, yet electric as you see the National Hunt powerhouses from both sides of the Irish sea battle it out, often spending 100’s of thousands to secure the next champion. This really is an opportunity, to get behind the scenes and see a new side of horseracing.
