Come and join us for our season opener, The Core Spreads Family Raceday. A day for the all the family, with activities and entertainment throughout the day. There is so much for the kids to do at our Family Raceday and with accompanied children go racing free, all the more reason to come along!

A fantastic day of racing with over £80,000 on offer in prize money, with two £20,000 races on offer, with the feature being the 0-140 handicap hurdle over 3 miles. Last year we had some local winners with the Gary Moore trained Hermose Vaquera winning the Core Spreads handicap hurdle and Sheena West trained Sixties Secret taking the juvenile hurdle. Despite it being the early season, with the prize money on offer we often see some early season quality in the novice and juvenile race and so keep yours eyes glued to the action and add them to your trackers!
