Horse Racing, Sun 10 Sep 2017


York Racecourse

York Racecourse


Fun for all on The Press Family Sunday, including seven thoroughbred races plus a Charles Owen Pony race at the beginning of the card, our interactive racing zone and bouncy castles.

We welcome, children's favourite, Paddington, again to York Races on this day too.

The natural rhythm of a raceday allows plenty of time to get something to eat and drink as well as providing room for quality time with the family. A wide range of additional entertainments will ensure a happy day out for all ages.

It naturally attracts a family crowd and remember that under 18's go for free (under 16 with accompanying adult only).

We will once again offer a combined Grandstand & Paddock and Course Enclosure in a single admission. Racegoers will still be able to bring a traditional picnic to enjoy on the Bank in Course Enclosure, take advantage of our special “picnic hamper cloakroom” and then cross over to see the horses close up. We hope other regular visitors may take this chance to explore the stand side of the course and sample the Knavesmire Restaurant or enjoy the elevated (and if needed dry) views from the stand itself.

Please note, for this special family meeting County Stand dress code is relaxed; gentlemen are not required to wear jacket, collar and tie.
