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.
In addition, for the first time, Cheltenham will be celebrating all that is great about
the region it is situated in, the Cotswolds. This will take place in the Gloucestershire Echo Cotswold Celebration Zone in The Centaur. Accessible to those with a Club/Tattersalls ticket. Find out what's happening here.
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.
As with previous Showcase meetings, there will be tours of the site, which take place on a regular basis once gates have opened. Tours will start from the Plaza at North Entrance.
Gates open at 12pm with the first race on Friday at 2.05pm & 2.00pm on Saturday. The last race is at 5.30pm, tickets on sale now.
