When a group of ten South Wales worthies gathered together in the early 1920s and formed a company to purchase Chepstow's picturesque Piercefield Park, little did they know just how successful their plan to build a racecourse in its 370 undulating acres would be.
Those pioneering stalwarts, including such dignitaries as the Lords Tredegar, Glanely and Queenborough, waited patiently for 3 long years as 80 men toiled to hew the course from the green and pleasant parkland. But those labours reaped a rich harvest in the summer of 1926 when 20,000 racegoers turned up for the inaugural race meeting at Chepstow racecourse.
