Amazing days out are set to continue this autumn with three exciting racedays taking place in Wales in the first two weeks of October.

With incredible sporting action on track, activities for children, wide ranging food options, music concerts and the chance to dress up or down, there is something for everyone at the races.

Tickets start from £19 and racing is one of the few sports where under 18s race free throughout the year.

All three fixtures feature as part of the Big Welsh Racing Weekend, taking place from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th October across Chepstow and Ffos Las Racecourses. Highlights include live music from Irish folk band Murphy’s Marbles, as well as The Jam at Chepstow Racecourse. The racecourse will also be offering a complimentary ticket to Ffos Las on Sunday to anyone who attends either on Friday or Saturday. The Sunday at Ffos Las Racecourse is Gentlemen’s Day where racegoers can expect to see Voice contestant Gary Ryland performing live.

Not only is racing a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an afternoon or evening in the great outdoors, but attendees can choose their favourite place to experience the action, whether that’s standing at the finish line, relaxing in the stands or watching the horses in the parade ring.
