The Showcase - Friday

The Wait Is Over

Opens 12:00, First race 2:00, Last race 5:30

Our season returns in fine style as we celebrate the best of the West. Join us on Friday 26th October for our opening day of The Showcase Meeting for quality racing at Cheltenham Racecourse.

As we enter the Winter months, the National Hunt season begins to get into full swing and many top trainers and owners will bring their promising stars of the season to Cheltenham Races to begin their season campaign for 2018/19.

Come along for a fantastic day of racing, with bars and restaurants open to suit all palates throughout the day. Returning in 2018 will be our popular SoGlos Showcase Zone to give racegoers the chance to try the finest products that Gloucestershire and the West has to offer. More on-the-day raceday information will be released in due course.

Looking to make the most out of your day at the races? We have world class hospitality options for all, with prices starting at £120 (including admission). The highly popular National Hunt Room is available offering views of the Parade Ring and course.
