Cheltenham’s Jump Season Starts with The Showcase
The jump season begins at the end of October with Cheltenham racecourse, the ‘Home of Jump’ opening with The Showcase meeting on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th October.
It is a popular meeting that sees many of the top owners, trainers and jockeys brining runners to the course and marking the beginning of the year for many horses.
This is the six month path of preparation during a season that inevitably end back back at Cheltenham and The Festival™ in March.
Only 40 minutes from London you don’t have to arrange a thing: from local luxury hotels such as Lords of the Manor to on course hospitality the Operations Team at Atlas Helicopters will organise your whole itinerary, just give them a call today.
A Bonus Inside The Showcase
Each day will feature seven competitive races, starting at 2.00pm and the bonus is that visitors will be given the unique chance to see, hear about and participate in some of the aspects of racing which are normally off-limits – including taking guided tours of the parade ring and weighing room.
In The Showcase Zone, local food and drink producers will also be displaying their wares for racegoers to sample and purchase, featuring Real Ale and Cider at The Centaur. Expect cheeses, fudge, and handmade gifts, alongside subscription-based Gin In a Tin alongside Cheltenham’s premium cocktail bar, Movers & Shakers.
Fly to Racing in the Cotswolds
Situated in Prestbury, on the outskirts of the historic spa town of Cheltenham, the Home of Jump Racing is the venue for the world’s pre-eminent Jump Racing meeting, The Festival, which takes place in March every year.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Cotswolds, Cheltenham Racecourse is a stunning natural amphitheatre and offers the highest-quality action throughout the Jump season.
