Betway Challow Hurdle Day

28 December 2019

Overview

The final raceday of 2019 features the Grade 1 Betway Challow Hurdle. The race has been won by the likes of Denman, Taquin de Seuil and Barters Hill in recent years and is always one of the most competitive and informative races of its type run all season.

It is a great day for the family with plenty of free entertainment on offer for younger racegoers too.

Take the chance to try out our Brasserie restaurant before racing – it offers a fresh, seasonal menu in a more casual setting with no pre-booking required.
