History of Chepstow Racecourse
Chepstow Racecourse is a fairly young venue, having only been established in 1926. Though it was initially a fairly minor course, the closure of the Carleon Racecourse forced the Welsh National to move to Chepstow. This greatly increased the stature of Chepstow in Welsh Thoroughbred racing. These days, it holds 29 race meets, divided between jumps and flat races.
Notable Races of Chepstow Racecourse
