Festival Trials Day

The last Saturday in January provides racegoers with the chance to savour great racing action

Opens 10:30, First race 12:30, Last race 4:35

The last Saturday in January provides racegoers with the chance to savour great racing action, as the momentum of the season builds towards The Festival™ in March. For the horses, this is their last race in their preparation for the big event, ensuring that all eight races provide hugely competitive action to enjoy. The highlight race is the BetBright Trial Chase.

Festival Trials Day will be tinged with memories, as in 2017, Thistlecrack had been beaten by the brave Many Clouds, a shock many did not see coming, but thoughts after the race were very much with Oliver Sherwood and all at his Rhonehurst yard after Many Clouds collapsed following his gallant effort.

After racing, we will be hosting a live screening of the Many Clouds film created by his former work-rider, Nathan Horrocks. Plus, a Q&A with Nathan and the equine star's trainer, Oliver Sherwood.
Keep your eyes peeled for more details coming soon.
