Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

What better way to spend the Friday of Half Term than at Exeter Racecourse for our Family Fun Day with a Superhero twist?


Aside from competitive racing, we will have:

- Meet and greet a Superhero

- Bouncy castles

- Climbing wall

- Cornwall Caricatures

- Racing to School

- Superhero goody bags

- Rosette making

- Colouring in

- Face painters

- Information stand from South West Wildlife Fundraising

Please note: the family fun entertainment is all FREE and will be in a heated marquee.


With 21 fences to negotiate, the Devon National is a contest which demands stamina, style and determination, so no wonder this is a popular day out for racegoers.


Some familiar equine stars regularly return year after year for a crack at Exeter’s variation of the Randox Grand National, run over three miles and six furlongs.


Our Listed Mares’ Chase over three miles is part of a classy and competitive supporting card and with plenty to keep you occupied off the track as well as on it, Devon National Day is a Friday afternoon to really get you in the weekend spirit.
