Saturday 10 November
YOUR LOCAL FAVOURITE
Our flagship raceday, Saturday 10th November Badger Chase Day, is 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.
At last year’s meeting The Jockey Club Racecourse ambassador Bryony Frost claimed one of her biggest successes to date when guiding the Paul Nicholls-trained Present Man to victory.
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.
The team here at Wincanton have a few Top Tips to make your day a success:
Wear: A woolly hat! It may only be November but we are in the West Country!
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: Have a flutter! Why not place a bet and cheer home your horse – you could finish the year on a winner!
