Thrilling trio of fixtures coming up at Catterick
Catterick Racecourse is preparing for an exciting three weeks at the course, culminating with Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Friday 3 June.
Events get underway on the evening of Friday 20 May, with racing starting at 5.20pm – perfect timing for those who have been working hard all week to start their weekend with a well-earned treat.
The course is offering a two-course special in the popular Winning Streak Restaurant that evening, in addition to the usual three course option and new afternoon tea package in the Paddock Café.
Alongside seven exciting races, with the feature race, at 7.03pm, kindly sponsored by local bookmaker Vickers Bet, there will also be live music to enjoy by Yorkshire-based singer/songwriter Andy Doonan.
The following week, runners and riders will be back at Catterick Bridge for the Spring Saturday fixture on 28 May. The first of seven races that day is scheduled for 1.51pm, with the feature race – a five-furlong sprint, taking place at 3.04pm.
Race goers can also enjoy live music by Micky Stockburn on Saturday 28 May, and there will be free children’s entertainment alongside the racing action, including a climbing wall in the Course Enclosure!
Finally, the racecourse is celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at its race day on Friday 3 June.
As part of Racing Together and Go Racing in Yorkshire’s Yorkshire Beacon, the racecourse has engaged with local primary schools and invited pupils to design the front cover of the race card for 3 June. In addition, the course is working with students from Risedale School to develop ideas for a ‘greener’, more environmentally friendly, and sustainable race day.
Fiona Needham, General Manager and Clerk of the Course said: “We are looking forward to the action unfolding over the next few meetings – with three of our feature race days in quick succession. There is plenty of opportunity for our race goers to enjoy a wonderful day out with friends and family!”
Under 18’s race free at all Catterick’s fixtures while discounts for adult tickets are available when booking in advance, making Course Enclosure admission just £5 and Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure admission £15.
