The opening day of a new Chester season for the oldest racecourse still in operation in the world.

City Day is built around a celebration of the heritage of the racecourse and our unique position within the city. Following the breath-taking traditional curtain raiser of the Lily Agnes Stakes, the Chester Vase and Cheshire Oaks will serve up some fantastic on-track action on the hallowed Roodee turf.

Top-class contenders from the likes of Aidan O’Brien and John Gosden will go head to head to compete at Epsom later in the season – this is the opportunity to run on the best conditions over the three days of the festival. The bar is set, expect high calibre racing and plenty of thrills.

Updates regarding tickets and availability will be released on our website and social media channels in due course. If you would like to be among the first to receive information about 2021 tickets and packages, please sign up to our newsletter.
