November Racing Weekend at Ascot ~ Friday 24 & Saturday 25 November

🏇 They’re under starters orders at Ascot for the November Racing Weekend, a two-day treat of National Hunt action at the famous Berkshire racecourse.  See below for the latest ticket information.  

The Jumps racing season continues apace at Ascot with its popular November Racing Weekend taking place on Friday 24 November (Day 1) and Saturday 25 November (Day 2). 

This meeting provides the perfect opportunity to see some of the stars of the future as a collection of promising novice hurdlers and chasers traditionally line up on the opening day of the weekend.  The likes of Chantry House, Angels Breath, Many Clouds and Simonsig have featured on the Day 1 card while a series of competitive, exciting handicaps over both disciplines ensure it is always an enjoyable day of Jumps racing.

Day 2 is headlined by the Grade 2 1965 Chase and Grade 2 Coral Hurdle over mid-range trips.  Both races have a rich history of attracting some of the biggest names in the sport.  None more so than the 1965 Chase which in 2019 saw an epic duel between Altior and Cyrname.

In 2022 Coole Cody, ridden by Evan Williams, won the 1965 Chase.  Gary Moore’s Goshen claimed the honours in the Coral Hurdle 

Alongside the excitement on the track, Great British Racing will be hosting a Racehorse Ownership Event.  This is in association with the Racehorse Owners Association and the Racehorse Syndicates Association.
