A SOMERSET TRADITION
Christmas holidays were made for a day at the races, and all roads lead to Wincanton Racecourse on Boxing Day when the county celebrates one of its finest traditions.
Official tickets on sale soon
Don your tweed, wear your brightest coat, and pull on your new hat and gloves that you received for Christmas because nothing beats that feeling when you’re out in the fresh air, watching the horses in the Pre-Parade Ring, bumping into friends and cheering the horses home to the Winning Post.
Christmas is such a special time. If you are with friends and family, bring them along and keep the festive celebrations going. It is the perfect place to walk off all that Christmas turkey and be a part of one of the biggest sporting days in the calendar.
- Wear: A woolly hat! It may only be November but we are in the West Country. We advise you dress for the weather
