Kickstart Raceday At Newmarket Racecourse - Sunday 6th May 2018

The Horseracing Certificate is back at the global Home of Horseracing: Newmarket!

Join your Pony Club friends on Sunday 6th May at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse to learn all about the equestrian sport of horseracing, earn your Horseracing Certificate and take part in lots of fun activities.

The highlight of the day's racing will be The QIPCO 1,000 Guineas. This is the first race in the Fillies & Mares category of QIPCO British Champions Series, which you can learn all about in 'The Fan Zone'.

Here 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 a racing pony, 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, there will be free activities for the whole family to enjoy across the racecourse, including lots of fun for the older generation. There will be live music throughout the day, particularly at the official Après Racing after party on the Hyperion Lawn just opposite 'The Fan Zone', not to mention the exceptional racing on show.

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!
