Situated just over the River Severn in south-east Wales, Chepstow Racecourse is a historic venue which stages action both on the flat and jumps throughout the year. Although initially just a flat course, Chepstow is now arguably better known for its National Hunt meetings, with the showpiece Coral Welsh Grand National fixture - on December 27 each year - often attracting a sellout crowd.
The racecourse was built in 1926 and over 20,000 people attended the inaugural race meeting at Chepstow.
David Nicholson, the ex-racehorse trainer and jockey, added his name to the Chepstow hall of fame by partnering three successive Welsh Grand National winners in 1959, 1960 and 1961 with Limonali twice and Clover Bud.
In the late 80s and early 90s, the race was dominated by Somerset trainer Martin Pipe, with Bonanza Boy winning the race in 1988 and 1989 while Pipe also won the feature in 1991, 1992 and 1993.
The racecourse also hosts several music nights throughout the season, with acclaimed Welsh singer Tom Jones as well as Madness and All Saints performing at the track in recent times.
