This opening race day of our four-day Festival of Food and Wine is a real feast for the senses. Fantastic racing is stirred with a host of culinary attractions including more than 40 stallholders.
Friday’s race card includes eight competitive Flat races. The Garden For All Seasons Maiden Stakes – a maiden race (for horses yet to win) over a mile and a half provides opportunities for horses that may run over longer distances in the future.
Racegoers will be able to sample and purchase food and wines from over 40 stalls (a complimentary shop and drop service offers further convenience). A BBQ Masterclass offers expert tuition.
The next day’s racecard is headlined by The Appletiser Stakes, the UK’s most valuable mile-and-a-half handicap. The Gastronome Theatre opens too with talks and demonstrations from the likes of Raymond Blanc OBE, Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown and wine expert Neil Philips.
Gates open at 11.00am.
Explore 40 stalls offering the chance to taste and buy gastronomic delights from around the UK.
