THE WAIT IS OVER

 

Racing returns to Cheltenham Racecourse, as we kick off the 2019/20 season with The Showcase Friday! 

 

FRIDAY 25TH October 2019

GATES OPEN: 12NOON

Our season returns in fine style as we celebrate the best of the West. Join us for the opening day of The Showcase Meeting for quality racing at Cheltenham Racecourse. 

Come along for a fantastic day of racing, with bars and restaurants open to suit all palates throughout the day.

 

Day One of the 2018 opening meeting saw Lil Rockerfeller continued his winning form over fences, scoring in the “Matchbook Time To Move Over" Novices' Chase for the Neil King team. The popular gelding has a brilliant relationship with the Prestbury Park track, having finished second in the 2017 renewal of the Sun Racing Stayers’ Hurdle.
