2018 – A day at the Races

Feel the thunder of the hooves and the smell of horse sweat as they gallop past the grandstand and on to the finish line, yes this time we are going to get up close and personal !

There are 8 races (all gallops) throughout the afternoon at half hour intervals so you have time to check out the form at the paddock, place a bet and then take your seat in the grandstand to watch the race.

We will meet at midday at the paddock area before selecting our spot in the grandstand. No formal arrangements have been made for lunch but there are a number of food and drink vendors on site and there is also a café/bar or you could even bring your own packed lunch if you prefer, the choice is yours.
