We wanted to share with you our amazing competition… Children are invited to submit their designs for the racecard cover. Completed designs can be emailed or posted to us.The winning design will feature on the card cover, given free to every racegoer and the winner will receive 4 tickets to the raceday and be presented with a framed copy of their design.

Entries must be received by Monday 11th September, making it a great home project to do over the summer holidays.

Gates open at 12 noon and we have 7 thrilling races across the card following the mascot race, kicking off the season in style!
