Catterick Racecourse will be celebrating all things Yorkshire this Saturday.

Yorkshire Day is one of the new themes to be added into Catterick’s 2017 racing calendar, and will give race goers the opportunity to enjoy more than just flat and national hunt racing at the course this year.

The Hunmanby Terrier Racing Team will be at the course, and will start the day with a demonstration of terrier racing ahead of the first race, at approximately 1pm.

The display team will also do two further, slightly shorter demonstrations in between the races throughout the afternoon, including one where children will be invited to take part.

The seven race card, sponsored by Totepool Racing, kicks off at 1.45pm and features the £20,000 Totetrifecta Pick the 1, 2, 3 Handicap Stakes.

The last race is scheduled for 5.30pm.

Alongside all the racing action, there will be live music from trombone soloist Kenneth Stamp to add a bit of Yorkshire Brass to the atmosphere, as well as the chance for race goers to win a bottle of Catterick Races branded bubbly.

Anyone looking to win will need to keep an eye out around the course on the day, and in the race card for details on how to enter.

There’s plenty on offer for any younger race goers to enjoy as well with free children’s entertainment in the course enclosure, and as with all of Catterick’s race fixtures, all under 18’s will gain free admission when accompanied by an adult.

Emma Binnian, sales and marketing manager said: “We hope that this new theme will create an enjoyable and memorable day out for the whole family this summer.

“From the action on the track, to the terriers and live music there’s something for everyone and it’s all made in Yorkshire.”
