Badger Chase Day at Wincanton


On Saturday 10th November the 51st running of the Badger Chase took place at Wincanton Racecourse. Ten Business Partnerships public houses took 235 guests to enjoy this exciting day.

The weather was fantastic, with the sun shining most of the day, and of course, the Badger beer was flowing. There were seven races, including The Badger Ales Trophy which offered a first prize of £34,330. ‘The Package’ was first past the post, winning this race against 12 other horses. At the end of the afternoon Mark Woodhouse’s horse ‘Foggy’s Wall’ won the last race, the ‘Bumper’. This was fabulous news for everyone who decided to back the ‘Hall & Woodhouse horse’. Foggy’s Wall fought hard to win, arriving at the finish line just before the favourite.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped organise and support this day as it was great fun. We’d also like to congratulate our Business Partner at the Black Bear in Wool, who sold the most tickets for the event in her public house and who won the prize of a box for 12 guests at another race at Wincanton.
