Wincanton Racecourse, Wincanton

(4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Wincanton Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Wincanton, Somerset, England.

The steeplechase fences are large, making it a good test of a chaser. Three fences in quick succession in the second half of the home-straight make for exciting racing and often change the complexion of a finish dramatically; resulting in a great many close finishes.

The track stages several big races, including the Kingwell Hurdle in February, and the CGA Chase on the same day; these races can be significant trials for the Champion Hurdle and Cheltenham Gold Cup respectively. Several of the races at the course are shown on Channel 4.

The track is located near to the yard of the trainer, Paul Nicholls and as such many of his promising young horses run here.

During the year to 2008, the course had the second highest casualty rate in the country, with 9 deaths.
