Exeter racecourse is a National Hunt racecourse with the highlight of the season being the Grade 2 Haldon Gold Cup – a chase run over 2 miles 1 1\2 furlongs. Exeter is a right-handed course that is more suited to galloping horses and is a trip that many horses find very testing. Best Mate – a 3 time Gold Cup winner – paid the ultimate price when suffering a heart attack during the 2005 edition of the Haldon Gold Cup.
