Cheltenham Racecourse

Friday 25th - Saturday 26th October 2019

RACING RETURNS TO CHELTENHAM RACECOURSE 

THE WAIT IS OVER

 

FRIDAY 25th & Saturday 26th October 2019

The wait is finally over, as the Home of Jump Racing comes alive once more, The Showcase marks the start of another action-packed season. 

 

As the days get shorter and the crisp mornings return, it can only mean one thing - Cheltenham is back. The thundering hooves and cheers from the crowd will return to Cheltenham's world class sporting venue on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th October. 

 

The buzz around the course as the gates open for the first meeting of the season is like no other day, with familiar faces bumping into one another and the racing community heading back to their racing roots. 

 

The exciting two-day meeting always sees a host of new racing recruits join the ranks - from trainers and jockeys to future equine stars and sets the tone for what's to come, leading all the way to The Festival™ presented by Magners in March 2020. 

 

The track is tested for the first time since May, spectators can expect to enjoy hair-raising action, returning friends and riveting rivalries on the track. With the Cheltenham team working hard to ensure the best horses grace the track, 2019 looks set to give last year's sensational showcase a run for its money.
