Boodles May Festival City Day 2024
The horse racing action kicks off on City Day, a superb fixture that opens with the MBNA Chester Vase. The race is traditionally regarded as one of the major trials ahead of the illustrious Epsom Derby and sees the season’s star colts put their credentials to the test in front of a packed crowd.
Boodles May Festival Ladies Day 2024
Day two of the Chester May Festival, widely known as Ladies’ Day, is one of the real highlights of the social and sporting calendar. The Roodee attracts the finest in fashion and style for an afternoon of world-class flat racing action, not to mention the Boodles Diamond Ormonde Stakes, which boasts prize money of £100,000 – a must-see race for any racing enthusiast.
Boodles May Festival Chester Cup Day 2024
The Chester Cup takes centre stage on the final day of the Chester May Festival. It’s one of the most historic handicap races of the season, having first been established in 1824 and has been a major race ever since. Run over a distance of two miles and two furlongs, it requires great stamina, speed and tactical nous to win the race on the tight turning track at Chester.
One of the most thrilling Chester Cup races in recent memory was the 2016 fixture. Jumps trainer Nicky Henderson claimed his first Chester Cup victory after No Heretic got up on the line to deny Nakeeta in a photo-finish.
The 2024 Chester May Festival promises to be another classic meeting, don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this magical event by booking your place in our course-facing hospitality facility, Silks.
