Horse racing at Kelso offers the unique charm of a bygone era, coupled with the very best of modern facilities. Add to this the friendliness of the staff and patrons, plus superb high-quality National Hunt racing in very picturesque surroundings and you have the reason for Kelso's reputation as Britain's friendliest course.
Great Character and Tremendous Atmosphere
Kelso's great character is dominated by the presence of the original grandstand which is flanked on either side by two modern stands, that blend in well, providing the very best facilities for both Members and Tattersalls Enclosures with excellent and uninterrupted covered stepped viewing of the whole course.
The tremendous, and often quoted, atmosphere created at Kelso ensures that all races staged at the borders track are fully sponsored and many local, national and international companies return on a regular basis allowing the Executive to offer above-average prize money.
Strong Betting Ring
Kelso's very strong betting ring is sited behind the new Tattersalls Grandstand thus allowing all the facilities to be sited much closer to the action than at any other racecourse. This greatly increases the feeling of fun and the excitement and adds enormously to the atmosphere of the whole day.
A truly memorable day is definitely on the cards so come to Kelso Races... It's an offer you can't refuse!
