FREE Behind-The-Scenes Tour - Sunday 21 July

Have you ever wanted to find out more about what goes on behind the scenes on a raceday? Now is your chance with our FREE Behind the Scenes Tour which will take place before racing on Sunday 21 July.

Whether you’re new to the sport or a regular at the races, we hope you’ll all walk away with some new knowledge about our wonderful sport.

As part of the tour you’ll enjoy:

  • A welcome talk from the Managing Director to hear more about the developments at the racecourse
  • A visit to the Weighing Room where you’ll be given a talk from the Clerk of the Scales and learn more about what happens before and after each race
  • Walking the route of the horse from the Parade Ring to the track
  • A talk from the ground staff about the work that takes place to prepare for racedays, including the building of the fences and the safety features of the padded hurdles.

The tour will begin shortly after gates open so that racegoers have plenty of time to prepare for the afternoon’s racing.
