Easter is just around the corner and with it comes a host of unmissable horse racing to keep the whole family entertained.
Kicking off the long weekend on Good Friday March 30 is Finals Day of the All-Weather Championships at Lingfield Park Racecourse where £1 million in prize money is on offer, making this the richest all-weather raceday staged in Europe and a day not to be missed! Under 18s are admitted for free and Premier tickets start at just £26.
In addition to seven exciting races, there will be plenty of extra entertainment for all age groups to get excited about. It’s no wonder this day has boasted sell-out crowds for the past three years. Gates open at 12pm, with the first race scheduled for 2pm.
If that’s not enough, you can hop over to nearby Kempton Park for even more free family entertainment on Easter Saturday, with gates opening at 12.30pm and the first race scheduled for 2pm. Prepare for an afternoon of quality All-Weather racing and free family entertainment including appearances from PAW Patrol’s Chase & Marshall at intervals throughout the day – it’s the perfect activity for your long weekend.
From Good Friday through to Easter Monday, there are 19 fantastic race fixtures taking place all across the country at which under 18s go free – meaning it’s the ideal time to get the whole family along to your local course.
From Musselburgh down to Newton Abbot, over to Ffos Las and across to Fakenham, there’s plenty of thrilling action to excite everyone this Easter. Every course will be providing eggscellent activities for under 18s, such as Easter egg hunts, carnival rides and much more – a perfect family day out for the Easter weekend.
And, if you want to get a behind the scenes taster of what it takes to get a racehorse to the track in peak condition, then head to the Lambourn Open Day on Good Friday where some of the most famous racing yards will be open to the public. Those who live further north can also join in the excitement at the Middleham Open Day.
