On behalf of Exeter Racecourse I am pleased to share the following races and new amendments; Thank you to those of you who have supported us with our race planning conversations recently.   

Due to the cancellation of the Exeter Intermediate Series, on 16th April we have a new amendment for D&C, Wessex and West Midlands below. We would be very grateful if this can be shared with your community, relationships, and websites as soon as possible, so that we can help the Racing & Pointing community have a near-usual racecourse opportunity this spring on Haldon Hill. 

We continue to review all of our races and consider changes at the end of each season; feedback is welcome. The changes are 16.04.21 and 22.04.21 respectively, we have added in our unchanged races as well for information; please always use Racing Admin for the latest race conditions. With thanks to the generous contributions of our Sponsors again this season
