Everything You Want to Know About Wincanton Racecourse
The current Wincanton Racecourse opened for business in 1927, and the running of it was taken over by the Jockey Club in the 1960’s. It’s a lovely galloping right-handed national hunt course that attracts high-class horses to a variety of top-class jumps meetings.
Those meetings include the Badger Chase Raceday in November, with the highlights on the card being the Grade 2 Rising Stars Novices Chase, the Grade 2 Elite Hurdle, and the Class 1 Badger Beers Silver Trophy Handicap Chase.
Wincanton’s other big meeting is the Kingwell Hurdle Day in February, with the Kingwell Hurdle being the eponymous highlight. The race is often used as a stepping stone to the following month’s Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham and Alderbrook, Hors La Loi III, and Katchit have all won both races in the same season.
17 fixtures are held at Wincanton each season, and racegoers can frequent a variety of bars, restaurants, and hospitality enclosures.
