Wincanton Racecourse

Saturday 9th November 2019

a highpoint in Somerset’s social calendar

One of county’s finest sporting occasions, which combines the excitement, colour, and camaraderie of horse racing, with the vibrant social side of the sport.





It’s the place to be seen this autumn as great horses, top jockeys and brilliant trainers come together to provide a jump racing spectacle for all to enjoy.


As well as the famous Badger Ales Chase, this day also hosts a Grade 2 Novices’ Chase, so you are sure to see a few stars on show.


It is a definite date in the diary for any Jump racing enthusiast and the perfect excuse to head down to Wincanton Racecourse this November.


  • Wear: A woolly hat! It may only be November but we are in the West Country. We advise you dress for the weather
  • See: The racing up close and make sure you watch a race from the rail
  • Buy: A glass of the famous Badger ale
  • Get involved: Why not place a bet and cheer home your horse – you could finish the year on a winner?
