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.
Chepstow Racecourse holds the Welsh National, the most important National Hunt race in Wales. Other important races include the Finale Juvenile Hurdle and the Persian War Novices’ Hurdle.
Chepstow Racecourse can be reached by road or rail. Air travel via helicopter can only be made by prior arrangement.
