And they're off!

Chepstow RacecourseThere can't be many more beautiful settings for a race course than the one at Chepstow.  Set in 440 acres of glorious Wye Valley countryside.  Located on the outskirts of the historic border town yet despite its rural setting is only a few miles from the M4 motorway meaning access couldn't be easier.

Chepstow is the premier racecourse in Wales and hosts a number of prestigious meetings throughout the year both on the flat and over jumps.  The highlight of the calendar is the Welsh Grand National held each December.

This Friday the course will stage its first evening race meeting of the year.  There are 7 races on the card with the first at 4:40pm and the last at 7:55pm and it promises to be an exciting evening of racing action.
