The national hunt race meeting consists of six races, which includes four professional races and two for military jockeys (the RAF representative in recent years too has been SAC Sam Williams, currently serving as an engineer with the Red Arrows): The Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Memorial Amateur Handicap Hurdle Race; and the Grand Military Gold Cup. The Grand Military meeting provides a thrilling day of quality racing in a relaxed environment to meet former comrades and celebrate service in the Armed Forces. Why not organise a car, mini-bus or coach party?
