WHERE FUTURE STARS ARE BORN

 

A fine day to come racing where we celebrate the triple Cheltenham Gold Cup-winning legend Best Mate after whom the Beginners’ Chase is named.

 

Join us on Haldon Hill for a midweek treat, host to the Best Mate Beginners’ Chase making it the place to spot future stars. Past winners include Sternrubin and Yanworth who both progressed to appear at the Cheltenham Festival.
