Toast 2016 at Cheltenham Racecourse, where no less than seven races and a chance to continue the New Year celebrations with family and friends awaits this New Year’s Day.

Place your bets on where you will be spending New Year’s Day this year. At home in front of the television, perhaps? You can do better than that…

Gloucestershire plays home to one of the finest racing courses in the country – and Cheltenham will once again be hosting its annual New Year’s Day racing on Friday 1 January 2016.

Whether you’re a racing expert or want to celebrate the start of a new year with a spot of trackside action in the festive fresh air, the New Year’s Day racing event in Cheltenham promises to be an exhilarating way to herald the arrival of 2016 with family and friends.

There are seven compelling contests lined up on the track from 12.10pm, with Ptit Zig, Rock On Ruby and Splash Of Ginge all winning at last year’s exciting and competitive races.

Plus, Pony Club members and their families will also have the chance to get an exclusive peek behind the scenes in a series of special racecourse tours too.

There’s usually children’s entertainment spanning everything from face painting to balloon modelling, not to mention special appearances from favourite characters such as Peppa Pig.

With attendance from some of the best horses, jockeys and trainers in the UK, spending New Year’s Day at Cheltenham Racecourse beats a day in front of the box, doesn’t it?
