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.
