Our Jumps racing showpiece
The Peterborough Chase is our most established and prestigious racing event of the year.

Roll of honour names include Desert Orchid, Remittance Man, Dublin Flyer, One Man, Best Mate, Edredon Bleu, Monet’s Garden and most recently Paul Nicholls’ Pic D’Orhy.
With an electric atmosphere and thrilling racing to warm even the coldest of December afternoons, Peterborough Chase Day is not to be missed.

Even the quickest of glances at the roll of honour for the Peterborough Chase tells you all you need to know of its rich history and prestige.
The highlight of Huntingdon’s season, the meeting itself presents a Sunday afternoon card of unparalleled quality, headlined by the Grade Two Peterborough Chase.
Some of the most famous names in Jump racing have won this two and a half mile contest over the years, including Desert Orchid, Remittance Man, Best Mate, Monet’s Garden and Edredon Bleu, who won a record four times in succession at the turn of the century.
Beyond the top-tier racing, racegoers get a chance to see plenty of Cheltenham Festival clues on offer too with many contenders going on to races like the Ryanair Chase at Jump Racing HQ in March or the Marsh Steeple Chase at Aintree’s Randox Grand National Festival in April as was proved by last year’s winner, Pic D’Orhy.
The supporting card is a strong one and includes the Listed Henrietta Knight Mares' Bumper, which is no stranger to throwing up a star or two itself, including a future Grade One winner in La Bague Au Roi.
With an electric atmosphere and heart-pounding races to thaw even the chilliest of December afternoons, Peterborough Chase Day is an unmissable event.
To get you into the racing spirit, we'll have musical entertainment performing throughout the course of the day!
Catch the all singing, strolling 4-piece band The Snap Chaps with sing-along hits that will have you full of festive cheer!
