Attended in previous years by HRH Prince Charles, over £1m has been raised at this race day to help The Prince’s Countryside Fund continue its vital work funding projects to support the people who live and work in our countryside.The race day features countryside inspired activities and the Prince’s Countryside Fund Charity Race.

A wealth of independent pop-ups to enjoy offering seasonal delicacies, hand-crafted gifts, charming stocking fillers that are not available on the high street. A complimentary shop-and-drop service is available so that you can get your Festive shopping off to a flying start.

The Grade 2 Coral Ascot Hurdle is the feature race on the card and a look at the list of its previous winners confirms its standing as one of the most important mid-season hurdle races on the Jumps calendar. No fewer than seven different Champion Hurdle winners have lifted the prize in recent decades, including the last two winners of the Cheltenham showpiece: Faugheen and Annie Power.

Over £1m has been raised at previous The Prince’s Countryside Fund racedays to continue the charity’s vital work funding projects to support the people who live and work in our countryside.

Please note the Shopping Village will be based in the Grandstand Admission area so all racegoers will have the chance to purchase their Christmas gifts.
