Kickstart Raceday At Haydock Park Racecourse - Saturday 26th May 2018

The Horseracing Certificate is coming to the North West of England!

Join your Pony Club friends on Saturday 26th May at Haydock Park Racecourse for their 'Family Day with the Armed Forces' raceday and to learn all about the equestrian sport of horseracing.

In the 'Fan Zone' area you will be able to earn your Horseracing Certificate. To do this you will need to complete the series of four key activities that will teach you all about the sport and the thoroughbred breed:

  • Go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse, including a visit to the paddock, a walk out onto the track and a trip inside the weighing room
  • Meet a racehorse and learn about the thoroughbred breed
  • Go to Jockey School, get dressed up in some jockey’s silks and have a bitesize lesson on one of the racehorse simulators
  • Learn about the different tack used by the horses and jockeys on a raceday

But the fun doesn't stop there. On the contrary, the 'Family Day with the Armed Forces' raceday offers fun around the racecourse for all the family. Visit the military village, located in the Be Friendly enclosure, with a whole host of things to see including tanks and military machinery. Course-side, the Sea Cadets will be running a log race around the final furlong on the track so you can see their stamina and strength, whilst the Red Devils will be parachuting over the track, during racing, in a spectacular display (subject to weather conditions).

This is a fantastic day to be shared with family and friends and to gain all the knowledge and tools you will need to follow QIPCO British Champions Series 2018 – don’t miss out!
