Family Day at Wetherby Racecourse

April 30, 2023

SUNDAY 30th APRIL, and the Going is Soft to Cuddly at Wetherby Racecourse on Family Day!

The first of Wetherby’s flat racing fixtures also sees a return to the track of the Poundland Mascot Gold Cup, a Guinness World Record holding charity Mascot race run over Wetherby’s final furlong.  With a field of over 60 Mascots entered, of all shapes and sizes, it is going to be a competitive race.   Mascots hold a parade and warm up session in the Paddock Enclosure from around 12noon and go out to race at 2.00pm.

As well as the exciting horse and mascot races to watch, we also have a host of additional free entertainment for the whole family on the day including the National Festival Circus, Petting farm, Barrel Train, and Inflatable Fun!

We have an enclosure to suit all budgets, and our best prices are available online.  The Paddock Enclosure provides the best way to access everything, and online tickets are available for £18, with concessions at £13.   The Course  Enclosure is just £6, with Concessions at £3.  Accompanied children under 18 are admitted free of charge on all of our racedays.  Car Parking is also free of charge.
