The £25,000 totesport.com Lord Gyllene Handicap chase will be run for the first time on Saturday.
The 1997 Grand National winner will also be at the racecourse parading for the crowds.
General manager David McDonald said: "Saturday will be a fantastic day. We are thrilled to welcome Lord Gyllene back to Uttoxeter."
Lord Gyllene was much loved by racing fans, not least because of his bold front running in his races.
Bred in New Zealand, he was purchased by Uttoxeter racecourse's late chairman Sir Stanley Clarke, trained by Steve Brookshaw and ridden by Tony Dobbin.
In December 1996, he ran at Uttoxeter and began a sequence of victories that would lead all the way to victory in the Grand National only months later.
Three wins in the space of two months in Staffordshire included the Singer & Friedlander National Trial.
He was then sent off as favourite for the Midlands Grand National, but had to shoulder top weight and finished as runner-up to Seven Towers.
But he went on to win at Aintree by 25 lengths, the largest winning margin for 20 years.
Lord Gyllene was retired by Sir Stanley in 2001.
