Friday 22 October



The Showcase Friday marks the return of racing to Cheltenham on Friday 22 October with an exciting seven racecard on offer.


In 2020, our two-mile feature race was won by the impressive Rouge Vif, and we also saw Galvin guided to victory before following up with Festival success in 2021.


To honour the late Andy Stewart, equine legend Big Bucks will be parading before the The Andy Stewart Memorial Amateur Jockeys’ Handicap Steeple Chase in the parade ring.


Jazz band The Hipcats will be roaming the Club/Tatts enclosure throughout the day.



Guarantee a memorable day out by matching superb sport with fabulous food and magnificent facilities at Cheltenham Racecourse for day one of The Showcase.


With excellent views of the racecourse and a lavish dining experience, the excitement of the day is easily accessed from your table.


It’s the perfect way to entertain clients, family or friends – a day you’ll never forget!



In line with Public Health England’s guidance, Racing continues to recommend the use of Covid-19 mitigations to keep racegoers safe.


All racegoers are recommended to observe the following measures:


  • Wear face coverings in enclosed and crowded areas – there will be additional facemasks available on the entrance to the racecourse but we recommend you bring your own.

  • Wash hands regularly – there will also be hand sanitising stations around the racecourse on the day and we recommend you use them frequently.

  • Observe social distancing where practicable and enjoy the vast amounts of space around the racecourse and avoid congregating in busy areas.

  • Be Covid-19 double vaccinated and any booster when offered, depending on personal circumstances, or undertake a Lateral Flow Test 48 hours prior to the raceday to identify positive cases.

  • If you feel you may be experiencing any of the recognised symptoms of Covid-19, please put on a face covering and speak to a member of staff in a well-ventilated area. It is best to travel home if it is safe to do so.

  • Please do not to attend if you are feeling unwell or are self-isolating

Thank you so much for your continued support and co-operation. We hope you have a wonderful day with us.
