Exeter Racecourse

Sunday 25 November 2018

This raceday has now passed, click here view our upcoming racedays at Exeter Racecourse.



Devon Day is a great local tradition when we celebrate the loveliness of our county that oozes from every nook and cranny, a perfect day for the family with a range of free Devon themed family entertainment on offer! Our celebrated Clydesdale race is a fundraiser for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and you can become an owner of one of these wonderful horses for the day with every single penny donated to the Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Simply contact the office for details by calling 01392 832599

You might wonder what the association between Clydesdales and Devon might be, but these gentle giants live at Brimpts in the heart of Dartmoor with Tim Ancrum and Aileen Ware of Adventure Clydesdales. The Clydesdale race will be at 12:00 and you are able to visit Visit Adventure Clydesdales online click here.

Local food, drink, and attractions will also be on show and our seven racecard is sure to throw up a classy winner or two – this is the meeting after all where Harry Fry’s highly regarded American won his novice chase debut last year.

Under 18's entry is FREE of charge, when attending with a full paying adult.


Come along and celebrate The Smarkets Devon Day at Exeter Racecourse.
