New Year’s Day racing on Haldon Hill is a much loved Devon tradition and hundreds of people will gather at the racecourse to enjoy the excitement and camaraderie of a day at the races.
General manager Dan Thompson said: “The atmosphere at Exeter on New Year’s Day is always fantastic with people wanting to celebrate the first day of the New Year in the fresh air against the backdrop of some thrilling racing. Nothing beats the experience of a day at the races.”
