Jump into the festive season with the Coral Gold Cup Long Distance Hurdle Day.

That’s right, it’s the same but different as we welcome back The Coral Gold Cup Meeting on Friday 1 & Saturday 2 December. Formerly known as Gentleman’s Day for the Ladbrokes Winter Carnival this day is still sure to bring you the same thrilling racing action with the feature race, the Grade 2 Coral Long Distance Hurdle. This is often one of the first chances to see some of the three mile champions in action, with recent winners including Unowhatimeanharry, Paisley Park, Thyme Hill and Champ.

Get your friends together to kick off the festive season in style. With exciting off track entertainment and an afterparty for the grown-ups, you won’t want to miss this event.

We will be operating both Premier and Grandstand Enclosures on this day.
