Don’t miss Plumpton Charity Raceday next week

PLUMPTON Charity Raceday in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF), which takes place on Wednesday February 13, is  looking to raise funds for one of racing’s main charities, the Injured Jockeys Fund.

This charity  is renowned for its outstanding work for jockeys of all distinctions and their families in difficult times.

The IJF will be holding a charity lunch and auction in the Marquee restaurant, priced at £75pp or a table of 10 for £700. If you would like to book a table or have any questions please email quoting Plumpton Charity lunch.

This raceday also marks the end of the Cheltenham Bonus Series for the 2018/19 season. What a great year it has been, with some top quality horses gracing Plumpton, such as Kalashnikov, Ok Corral, Mister Dino and Mister Malarky- the best series to date.

There is still some limited availability in the Paddock Restaurant which can be booked through the office on 01273 890383. It is the perfect way to join all at Plumpton in January, with a three course meal, a table for the day, entrance badge, racecard and a great all round view.
