Newby and The Press Family Sunday

There’s fun for all at the annual Newby & Press Family Sunday at York Raceday (Sunday 9 September), including record prize money for a seven-race thoroughbred card worth approaching £150,000.

The feature race, the Listed Ryedale House Garrowby Stakes alone, offers £50,000; marking the arrival of Newby Developments to both the racecourse as a sponsor and the city as a major regenerator.

Another newcomer to the day is children’s favourite, Chase from the hit show, Paw Patrol, who will make appearances at intervals throughout the day on the Knavesmire.

The only Sunday of the season sees the return of the Finals as young riders take part in the Charles Owen Pony Racing Series.

It is a full day out for both the novice and regular racegoer and those under 18 years of age will be admitted free of charge into all enclosures, though the under 16s will need to be accompanied.
