THE UK’S LEADING SMALL JUMP RACECOURSE
Warwick Racecourse is recognised as one of the oldest horse racing venues in the country, with its first race dating back as early as 1694.
Initially, horse racing was introduced to the town as a means of attracting wealthy professionals to assist in rebuilding Warwick’s affluent neighbourhoods after its ruinous Great Fire.
However, the sport quickly became popular and now the racecourse hosts 18 days of gripping jump racing between September and May.
One of its most sought-after events, Christmas at the Races is the perfect end of year celebration for colleagues, family and friends. Many racegoers step out in their most festive attire, with high hopes of being crowned best dressed and be in with the chance of winning tickets to other racing fixtures.
