Good to firm, good in places

Come and join us at Wincanton Racecourse to celebrate St George's Day! As a quintessential English racecourse we are proudly dedicating our 23rd April fixture to the celebration of St George's Day. Our feature race is the Military Hurdle, where members of the armed forces take to the track in their own hurdle race. In continuation of our support of Military personnel, we have donated 250 tickets to Ticket for Troops so that serving members of the Armed Forces can join the celebration for free.

There is a range of activities being run to celebrate the day, including photo opportunities with the St George mascot and the mascot race! Racegoers can get involved themselves with the assault course and laser clay entertainment, all whilst enjoying the Wincanton Silver Band who will be performing throughout the day. Racing to School will also be in attendance, offering free insights to the racing industry.

It doesn't stop there - we're also letting in anyone called George, Georgina or Georgia FREE of charge! Just bring a form of photo ID to the gate for free entry on the day.

For the rest of us - tickets are available to purchase on the gate.

Free entry for 17's and under.

Complimentary coach from Templecombe: The coach will meet the London Waterloo train arriving at Templecombe Station at 12:28pm and wait for the Exeter train arriving at 12:46pm. The last race is currently at 5:00pm and the coach will leave the course twenty minutes later.
