In the heart of Cambridgeshire
Situated in Cambridgeshire and hosting 18 racedays in a year, Huntingdon Racecourse is often considered one of the best small courses in the country.
Racing highlights include the prestigious Peterborough Chase, run a fortnight before Christmas, a contest with history and heritage having attracted some of the greats like Desert Orchid, One Man, Edredon Bleu and Best Mate over the years.
The Peterborough Chase
The Peterborough Chase is Huntingdon Racecourse’s most established and prestigious racing event of the year. Since the race was first staged in 1969 the racecourse has witnessed some of the most famous names in jump racing win the Grade 2 Listed race - including Desert Orchid, Remittance Man, Dublin Flyer, One Man, Best Mate, Edredon Bleu and Monet’s Garden. The day not only features exhilarating racing but also a wide array of family entertainment.
Boxing Day racing at Huntingdon Racecourse is as much a part of Christmas as turkey, mulled wine and crackers.
