The Agetur Kingmaker Chase Day is one of the highlights of the season and has acted as a stepping stone ahead of The Festival™ presented by Magners at Cheltenham and the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree.
There are many famous names etched on the trophy including Long Run, Finian’s Rainbow and Saint Calvados. 2017 saw the father and son team of Willy and Nigel Twiston-Davies partner up to claim the title with R J Rexton’s Flying Angel.
Saint Calvados, the six-year-old gelding, was championed home by Aidan Coleman in 2018 and has gone on to recently win in 2019 at The Showcase at Cheltenham Racecourse, under jockey Gavin Sheehan.
Alongside spectacular racing, 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!
There will be a range of activities that will educate, inform and give you top tips to enjoy a day at Warwick Racecourse. For more information take a look at Racing Explained to learn everything you need to know 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 their racing career.
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 paces.
A talk will be taken with the BHA racecourse Vet as well as raceday tips from jockey David Crosse.
