About

The 2018 season opener, City Day sees a change in format to the Boodles May Festival, as the opening day celebrates 100 years of the Chester Vase. This meeting serves up some fantastic on-track action with both Derby trials separating the men from the boys, as top-class contenders go head to head to compete at Epsom later in the season.

2017 was a winning year for Chester, producing a Derby winner in Wings of Eagles and a double Oaks winner in Enable. The bar is set, expect high caliibre racing and plenty of thrills.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, tickets and badges in County Concourse and Tattersalls enclosures will be Half Price for a limited time only. Purchase yours before the deadline of Wednesday 4 April and ensure you make a saving.
