Cheltenham’s season begins with a bang. As the leading horses, jockeys and trainers return to the spiritual Home of Jump racing, The Showcase provides the perfect opportunity to come racing with friends, family and colleagues.
As well as all the action on the track, racegoers will also be able to get behind the scenes of “The Sport of Kings”. There will be guided tours of the Parade Ring and Weighing Room before racing. We are working on other exhibitions at the moment and will update you as soon as possible.
Racegoers attending the two days will notice that Cheltenham Racecourse has changed significantly since it shut its doors at the end of April. As the first stages of the £45 million Cheltenham Racecourse development will be completed in time for The Showcase meeting, those attending will be able to enjoy two new bars, situated above the paddock. In addition, the horse walk will be repositioned with a bridge over it to aid crowd movement around the site. There will be tours around the racecourse so that people can see the changes that have already been completed and understand those to come, as the remaining building works progress over the next 18 months. All other facilities on site, such as The Centaur, private boxes, Hall of Fame, North Entrance, the Arkle Bar and the Mandarin Restaurant will be in use as normal.
Gates open at 12pm with the first race at 2pm. The last race is at 5.30pm, tickets on sale now.
