Ever really wondered what the sport of horseracing is all about? If you’re new to the sport, join us at our Newcomers Raceday to learn all about Jump racing. 

 

We will have former jockey Mark Wall hosting at our 'All You Need To Know Zone’. Mark will be there to answer any questions you have about Jump racing and accompany you throughout the day to help demystify the ins and outs of a day at the races. It will be an all-encompassing day that promises to enlighten, enthrall, and garner new interest for a sport that is as social as it is entertaining. More information below. 

 

Don't miss an exclusive parade from Clan Des Obeaux at 1:45pm in the Parade Ring who is the back-to-back winner of the Ladbrokes King George VI Chase at Kempton Park. The Paul Nicholls OBE trained gelding is a Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup 2020 contender.  

 

It’s the perfect opportunity to wrap up warm, get outdoors and enjoy a day at Wincanton races.
