Devon & Exeter Races (10 minutes drive from Ashcombe) are at the world famous Haldon Course on the 12th October.
It is the Season Opener with the first race at 2.20pm and the last at 4.50pm. This course is the highest racecourse in the land at 850 feet above sea level, the second longest at 2 miles and has been described as not only one of the loveliest courses, but one of the fairest tracks in the country. Racing has been at Haldon for over 350 years. Nearly all the greatest steeplechasers have started their careers at Haldon as it is one of the best tests of horse and rider in the UK.
Fantastic racing, a superb atmosphere, and fine Devon food and drink will be kicking off Autumn racing at Exeter Racecourse in style! Visit the website for more information
