Today we crown our county’s very own jump racing hero with the annual running of our Devon National Handicap Steeple Chase. The race is now worth over £25,000, and the winning horse’s name will be added to a list of equine heroes that include some of racing’s best loved steeplechasers. We all love a National-style race and our own over 3m 6 1/2 furlongs proved an absolute cracker last year – you can watch it here to relive the magic! In fact all of our race replays can be watched here after every fixture!
Like every jump racing fan, we love these horses and as a token of our appreciation, each runner will receive a bag of carrots and packets of polos.
