Start Your Cheltenham Festival Week Off With An Afternoon’s Racing at Stratford Racecourse

Bordeaux Undiscovered are racing enthusiasts and support our local races at Stratford Racecourse.

It’s one of the country’s leading small summer jumps racecourses and racing takes place regularly between March and October. You can see many top trainers and jockeys at Stratford Racecourse and the First Meeting to open the season will be held on the afternoon of Monday 10th March.

This is the day before the racing at Cheltenham Festival Week opens and Stratford Racecourse are making this a special event with an At The Races Preview.

They are offering a Carvery lunch (from the brand new Carvery in the Chaser Room) and a Cheltenham Festival Preview Talk from a star panel including At The Races presenter Robert Cooper and a leading Trainer and Jockey (yet to be agreed) with big hopes at Cheltenham. Declarations will be out for the famous Champions Day!

It’s a great start to what will be a wonderful racing week. The Carvery will be available for Club/Tattersalls Ticket Holders and Annual Members at a cost of £5 if booked in advance or £9.95 on the day. The Cheltenham Festival Preview Talk is complimentary for any Tattersalls/Club Ticket Holders and Annual Members, and will take place at 1:00pm.

The current going is soft but the racecourse is drying out all the time. A little rain is expected Friday (3mm) but otherwise it is dry and sunny up to and beyond the raceday.

Stratford Racecourse did suffer from the awful flooding that we saw earlier this year when the catchment ditch that runs through the centre field to drain the racecourse overflowed, as did the nearby River Avon.

However Stratford Racecourse are well prepared for flooding being so near to the river and a pumping system was rapidly deployed to save the day!
