Built around celebrating the history of racing at Chester and its unique part of the city’s culture – it’s set to be a prestigious meeting not to be missed! The festival begins with the breath-taking curtain raiser of the Lily Agnes Stakes with the Chester Vase and Cheshire Oaks serving up some fantastic on-track action separating the men from the boys. The 188Bet Chester Cup, considered to be one of the leading staying handicaps of the year also takes place; making the Boodles May Festival a great event to test yourself against the best. Lying on the banks of the River Dee the 65 acre Chester racecourse was once a Roman settlement of the city during the Dark Ages. In 1539 the first horse race took place and the rest they say is history, with it becoming one of the most popular courses in the country. Chester Racecourse is referred to by jockeys and horse racing fans as the ‘Roodee’ which originates from the centre of the in-field’s raised mound which is decorated with a small cross known as a ‘rood’.
