Devon's big day out

the first raceday of 2021

 

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.

 

With a thrilling seven racecard, you will often see top trainers bring a range of quality horses to the first race meeting in 2021.
