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

Our season returns in fine style as we celebrate the best of the West. Join us today for our 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.

 

Returning will be our popular SoGlos Showcase Zone to give racegoers the chance to try the finest products that Gloucestershire and the West has to offer.

 

Day One of the opening meeting at the fixture 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.
