A Trip Down Memory Lane on Racing Together Community Day

Catterick Racecourse, along with Racing Welfare, will host a Racing Reminiscence Day alongside the Flat racing action at the Yorkshire track on Thursday, 25th May.

Racing Welfare hold regular ‘Racing Reminiscence’ Coffee Mornings for retired members of the racing community that give them a chance to meet, connect and share stories with the aim of combatting loneliness. With Racing Together’s Community Day, racing’s national day of volunteering for the community, also taking place on the 25th it created the perfect opportunity to hold an event for the Community.

Gail Burton-Pye, Welfare Officer at Racing Welfare said: “We are really excited to be working with Catterick Racecourse to deliver our Racing Reminiscence Day. It is a fantastic opportunity for Racing Welfare to share some of the amazing memories and memorabilia that has been kindly donated by our retirees with Catterick’s racegoers. Please do come along and have a look.” 

There will be displays of racing memorabilia and stories in the Paddock Café and the Main Entrance as well as footage on the big screen. Racing Welfare will also have their own dedicated area within the Paddock Café for those who would like a coffee or a chat.

Racing Welfare have also put together a quiz to test racegoers memories and the winner will receive a voucher for two Grandstand & Paddock admission tickets to a Catterick raceday of their choice in 2023!

Emma Stevenson, General Commercial Manager said: “We’re delighted to be working with Racing Welfare and we are looking forward to welcoming their beneficiaries to Catterick on 25 May. It’s been wonderful learning more about the history of the course and hearing some of our racegoer’s memories in the lead up to this event.”
