The Cheltenham Countryside Race Day is taking place on Friday 12th November after two years of cancelled events. As ever, there is a fantastic array of auction lots available to bid on ahead of the day itself as well as some exciting live auction pieces up for grabs. The proceeds of the online auction go towards the Countryside Alliance and our campaign work in Parliament, in the media and on the ground, as well as HELP Appeal; a charity raising funds for life-saving helipads.
With over 75 auction lots to choose from – alongside seven lots that will be auctioned live on the day – there is plenty to choose from for hunting, shooting, racing and countryside enthusiasts.
Keen riders and hunting enthusiasts will enjoy lots such as x6 tickets for the London International Horse Show at the ExCel Centre and a season ticket for the Badminton Horse Trials. A day’s hunting with the Wheatland Hunt, Portman Hunt and Ledbury Hunt upfront with David Redvers MFH are also available.
Keen racers will enjoy lots such as a course-facing hospitality box at Cheltenham New Year’s Day Meet, a chance to meet the stars at Paul Nicholls Racing, a morning with Dan Skelton, and a morning at Heath House Stables with Sir Mark Prescott. Racing fans can also bid on behind the scenes visits to yards and gallops, including those of Venetia Williams, Nicky Henderson, Oliver Sherwood and Alan King.
Why not try your luck on a lot for a one night stay at The Coniston Hotel, tickets to the Silverstone Grand Prix or a brewery tour? Head over to the auction website to place a bid on a solid bronze statue from Hamish Mackie, a portrait commission by Davina Musker and much more.
To get involved, simply visit the auction website and click on the lot you would like to bid on. We are incredibly grateful to those who have donated special lots to the auction and look forward to seeing some of the action on the day itself.
