Flat Cap & Whippet Family Day
The first of Pontefract’s Family Sundays is Flat Cap & Whippet Family Day – 1st race 2.20pm
Sunday racedays have always been extra special for Pontefract Racegoers. Their renowned Sunday fixtures not only feature the best racing of the year at Pontefract with over £100,000 worth of Prize Money available at each meeting, but they are also the 3 fixtures each season dedicated to families.
As well as special events on each Sunday raceday, there will also be a funfair, face-painting, circus, free sweets, activity packs and racecards for kids, pony rides, trips to the starts of races and a ‘Hunt The Golden Horseshoe’ competition on every Family Day!
- Come and marvel at the whippet racing as they speed up the track from midday.
- Enjoy ferret racing in the Picnic Enclosure throughout the afternoon
- Wear your flat cap and you could be one of 500 racegoers to pick up either a free racecard, drinks voucher or betting voucher!
In words taken from Pontefract’s website “We’re also out to show that Yorkshire is much more than Flat Caps and Whippets – it’s a warm, welcoming, brilliant place to be!”
