Pontefract Family Raceday
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, facepainting, 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!
It’s also the 12th Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival which kicks off at Ripon on Saturday 20th July and concludes with this Ponte Family Day on Sunday 28th July. With racing throughout the White Rose county all week, it’s a Festival to remember for racing enthusiasts.
There’s some stunning action on the track as well with the Listed Pomfret Stakes being the feature. Mick Appleby’s globe trotting Big Country took the race in 2018 before going on to compete in Group races in Norway and Sweden. Who’ll take the honours in 2019?
