Near Wincanton Racecourse, Dorset Country Hotel

There are 17 fixtures of quality jump racing at Wincanton Races from October to May, an average of two meetings per month. Fortunately, eight of these race days are on a weekend or a bank holiday which means a day at the races is so much easier. The Sunday and bank holiday races are more for the family with free children's entertainment, including a crèche for 3-8 year olds and 'Jolly Jumpers' amusements on Sunday meetings. Children aged 16 and under gain free admission to all race meetings.
