New Year's racing in Cheltenham

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Toast to 2015 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 TV, 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 Thursday 1 January 2015.

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

There’s seven compelling contests lined up on the track from 12.10pm – with Calgary Bay and Oscar Whiskey reigning victorious in 2012 (the 2013 event was sadly cancelled because of a waterlogged track), going on to become grade one victors later in the season. 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?
