New Year's Day
Banish the sore heads from the previous night’s celebrations and watch seven compelling contests on the track. Enjoy the thunder of the hooves, as the horses duel for the honours in the hope to being in the number one position in the famous Cheltenham Winner’s Enclosure.
In 2012, Calgary Bay and Oscar Whisky won two of the biggest races and both became Grade 1 victors later in the season. New Year’s Day is also a highlight for Pony Club members and their families, who have the chance to look behind the scenes in special racecourse tours.
Gates open at 10.30am with the first race at 12.10pm. The last race is at 3.40pm*.

The family fun zone is located in the shopping village and open from 10.30am until the last race, adults need a Club/ Tattersalls ticket to access the family zone and kids must be accompanied at all times.
