Due to high demand we will now be running two buses going back to the train station from the Racecourse, one at 4pm and one 4.40pm


With a 56-year continuous association with horseracing & Wincanton Racecourse, the Badger Ales Chase is the sport’s most celebrated handicap chase. Run on Saturday, 11th November and broadcast live on ITV, the Badger Ales Chase remains a contest on every jockey’s wish list.
Do join us for an afternoon of outstanding racing and live music as the Enrichments will be performing.

"Today on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we will observe a two minute silence in recognition of Armistice Day marking the end of the First World War and to honour those who have paid the price for our freedom."

Come along and enjoy some proper Somerset fun – great racing and a super day out!
