On race days, Ludlow attracts the very top trainers, Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson, Kim Bailey, Philip Hobbs to name a few, and is popular with the elite of the jockeys, Richard Johnson, Aidan Coleman and Tom Scudamore.

Ludlow prides itself for being friendly and in touch with ‘real racing’ with no formal boundaries and the race goers being able to rub shoulders with the jockeys, trainers, owners and Directors.

Historically, Ludlow has always punched above its weight in prize money with over £1 million being allocated annually.

As well as race days, there are great facilities and flexible spaces for Hospitality and Events for the other 300 or so days per year.
