What is Wincanton Racecourse Famous For?

The first Wincanton Races were held just south of the town on Hatherleigh Farm in 1867. World War I brought financial difficulties but Lord Stalbridge's investment helped fund construction at Kingwell Farm when the lease for Hatherleigh expired in 1925. The first meeting at the current location was held on Easter Monday 1927.

Wincanton survived another brush with bankruptcy at the end of World War II before being bought by the Racecourse Holdings Trust, now Jockey Club Racecourses, in 1966. The track has been upgraded several times since and attracts strong fields thanks to its proximity to top trainers including Paul Nicholls.

Wincanton Racecourse Track Specifics

Wincanton is a right-handed flat rectangular circuit of a mile and three furlongs (2200m). It is a very fast track with sharp bends, stiff fences and a downhill run from the home turn which favours prominent runners. In testing conditions, it can become something of a slog.

Wincanton Racecourse Biggest Meeting

Boxing Day is Wincanton's most popular fixture although its best card is Badger Chase Raceday in early November. The Listed Badger Beers Silver Trophy Handicap Chase shares top billing with the two-mile (3200m) Grade 2 Elite Hurdle and the Grade 2 Rising Stars Novice Chase.

The Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle in mid-February was once a significant trial for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham but its status has diminished in recent years.
