Pontefract Races Racing Buddies Raceday Monday 23rd April
23 Apr 2018 at 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Let us know who your Racing Buddy is and you can surprise them by bringing them racing for FREE when you book a ticket in advance for this race meeting. Just by tagging their name on our Social Media posts you can let them know that you’re treating them to a day at the races!
And if you’re coming racing on your own, we’ll be launching our new BETS AND BANTER SOCIAL CLUB at this meeting with our own Wendy hosting a meet and greet area in the main Grandstand & Paddock Bar.
On the track, the 2nd meeting of the season features the equine equivalent of the London Marathon!
The Pontefract Marathon is the longest flat handicap race run in Britain! Did you know that Pontefract is also the longest continuous racing circuit in Europe? At 2m 136yds all round, you need a brave, staying horse to get up the famous ‘Ponte’ hill!
There are seven exciting races to get your heart racing and it’s well worth booking the day off work!
