IT'S A DEVON TRADITION

 

New Year’s Day at Exeter Racecourse is one of our county’s finest sporting occasions and it’s a day not to be missed. 


It's a great Devon tradition, and when you experience that same sense of elation that time spent outside evokes, you'll understand why people come back year after year. There is no better way to welcome in the New Year. 


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


The team here at Exeter have a few Top Tips to make your day a success 

  • Wear: A woolly hat… don't let the celebrations of the night before give you a chill…
  • See: The racing up close and make sure you watch a race from the rail
  • Buy: Treat yourself to a Raceday Essentials Package and have all you need to enjoy your day at the races
  • Get involved: Have a flutter! Why not place a bet and cheer home your horse – you could finish the year on a winner.
