Christmas holidays were made for a day at the races, and all roads lead to Wincanton Racecourse on Boxing Day when the county celebrates one of its finest traditions. Don your tweed, wear your brightest coat, and pull on your new hat and gloves that you received for Christmas because nothing beats that feeling when you’re out in the fresh air, watching the horses in the pre-parade, bumping into friends and cheering the horses home to the finishing line.
Christmas is such a special time. If you are with friends and family, bring them along and keep the festive celebrations going. It is the perfect place to walk off all that Christmas turkey, and be a part of one of the biggest sporting days in the calendar.
Be sure to book your tickets early as this day quickly sells out.
The team here at Wincanton have a few Top Tips to make your day a success:
Wear: Something festive! Hang on to the Christmas spirit and celebrate with us this Boxing Day!
See: The pre-parade ring! Watch the horses getting saddled ahead of the racing
Buy: Treat yourself to a Raceday Essentials Package and have all you need to enjoy your day at the races.
Get involved: Have a flutter! Why not place a bet and cheer home your horse – you could finish the year on a winner!
