Attended the course for the Saturday racing. £15 for the centre course £25 for the grandstand and dearer options for the suites.

Food and drink were expensive but this was expected however this will not... More

Hope you enjoyed the day overall. We had 8 races featuring some of the very best horses in training including an incredible win by American who could turn out to be a future Cheltenham winner. We also featured The Midlands Grand National with £125,000 prize fund. Add this to the entertainment throughout the day provided by Mr Wilson's 2nd liners... More

Really enjoyed our visit. Far better than we thought it would be. The food was good and the service friendly . We really enjoyed seeing mr Wilsons 2nd liners come and play in the restaurant. Great fun! Unfortunately we didn't get any winners but had a fabulous day. Thoroughly recommend would love to go again 😊
