Details

The biggest day of the year in Welsh racing, featuring the £150,000 Coral Welsh Grand National and the £50,000 Coral Future Champions Finale Hurdle.

Last year the big race was won by the star Native River. The Finale Hurdle was won by Defi du Seuil, so the racing is definitely of the highest order!

There will be lots of musical entertainment, including a male voice choir from Monmouthshire, the fabulous Wild Murphys band and Welsh opera singers Shan Cothi & Rebecca Evans singing the national anthem.

Join us for the best raceday of the year!

Children welcomeDisabled access

Chepstow Racecourse has it all – beautiful countryside, a friendly, charming atmosphere and an impressive racing pedigree. Superbly located between Bristol and Cardiff and close to the M4, M48 and M5 with excellent links to many parts of the UK, the picturesque Wye Valley provides a striking backdrop to 440 acres of historic parkland. A day at the races is as casual or as formal as you want to make it. For some it’s a get together with friends, for others it’s an excuse to dress up, especially on Ladies Night when many ladies get dressed up and wear hats – not obligatory, but great fun! Families are always welcome with accompanied children under 18 entering for free and free entertainment on certain days. There is top quality jump racing throughout the winter and flat racing through the summer, which includes a string of feature evening meetings with live music. The jewel in the crown is the Coral Welsh Grand National run on 27th December. We look forward to welcoming you to Chepstow Racecourse.
