GET RID OF THE JANUARY BLUES

 

The day of the celebrated Somerset National, a fine opportunity to watch some of our best-loved chasers take their place in the limelight.

 

It’s a race with a great history, past winners including Alfie Spinner, a veteran of 46 races and victor of the 2017 Somerset National with Jamie Moore in the saddle and the wonderful Golden Chieftain who won the 2016 renewal - all hugely adored horses who strike a chord with their legions of fans.

 

Jump racing in January is the perfect opportunity to break free from the office and indulge in some corporate entertainment in one of our hospitality suites where chat, food, and horses are the order of the day, or book a table in Chasers Restaurant and enjoy the best view on the course. 

 

Official tickets on sale soon.
