There are many famous names etched on the trophy including Saint Calvados claiming the title. The six-year-old gelding was championed home by Aiden Coleman in 2018 and has gone on to recently win in 2019 at The Showcase, with jockey Gavin Sheehan.

 

As this day is all about the novice racehorse, we thought we’d make it a special occasion if you are an inexperienced racegoer with lots of activities and entertainment that will educate and de-mystify the often complex world of horse racing. RacingExplained!

 

Join a local racing expert on a tour of the racecourse one hour prior to the start of the first race for only £5 extra than an admission ticket.

 

Get an insider’s view of the track and its incredible history dating back over 300 years. Find out how if it wasn’t for the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694, there may not be any racing in the town at all.

 

Discover why the 1810 Kings Plate winner, Trusty was not true to his name. Learn what world record The Chandler achieved in a race at Warwick before going to win the Grand National.

 

Not only will you get a behind the scenes tour and learn what goes into making a day at the races happen, but your host will also provide tips straight from the horse’s mouth to assist in making your day profitable one!

For The Agetur Kingmaker Chase Day, we often welcome novice racehorses and this is the perfect raceday to welcome novice racegoers alike. 

 

There will be a range of activities that will educate, inform and give you the top tips to enjoy a day at Warwick Racecourse. For more information take a look at Racing Explained to learn everything you need to about Horse Racing. 


We are pleased to welcome the British Racing School to give a range of advice on how to start a career within the racing industry and the range of training opportunities available. 

 

There will be a parade from Retraining of Racehorses ahead of racing to showcase the

versatility and adaptability of racehorses for other equestrian activities after a career in the horse racing.

 

A painted horse demonstration will be carried out in the parade ring to educate racegoers on the muscular, skeletal and fascial structure of the horse. You will be able to see how the muscles work and interact to create the movement throughout the different gaits.  

 

A talk will be taken with the BHA racecourse Vet as well as raceday tips with jockey David Crosse.
