We have various promotions running throughout each season.

Click on each tab below for details of current offers:

Wall of Fame

The Wall of Fame is back in 2018 and once again, you beautiful lot are the stars. 

Not only does the Wall Of Fame have its own dedicated page, but a new gorgeous mosaic, with brand new faces, will again be brought to life at the Racecourse with a 20’ x 8’ piece of art in the Paddock Lounge Bar. 

Find your face on the Wall of Fame, you could win some pretty amazing prizes!

How do you win?

  • Find yourself on the Wall of Fame
  • Make a note of the reference number on the Wall of Fame grid that you appear in
  • Visit the Raceday Office during a 2018 race meeting and claim your prize! 

There’s the opportunity to win a free hospitality box, free meals and some fantastic VIP prizes as well as free racedays, free bets and free drinks!

Don’t worry if you can’t see yourself on the Wall of Fame this year, you could be on it in 2019! From December, you'll be able to upload a picture of yourself here at Ponte and you could be starring in 2019!.



It's Champion

Don’t miss out on our new promotion for 2018 celebrating the achievements of our champion trainer and jockey during our 2017 season.

Richard Fahey trained 9 winners during the 2017 season at Pontefract and Danny Tudhope rode 10! And, every time they ride a winner at Pontefract in 2018, they’ll unlock a special offer on course which will be valid until the published off time of the next race, or for 30 minutes straight after the last race of the day if they win that.  

The ‘It’s Champion’ offer will vary at each race meeting with the specific special offer announced on the morning of each race meeting.

So with messrs Fahey and Tudhope, you could be on to a winner in 2018, even if your horse loses!   

The Ponte Faithful

Did you go racing at Ponte in 2017?

Did you book in advance? 

If so, you're already qualified to be in the Ponte Faithful brigade!

If you made a booking online (or over the phone) in 2017 and return to make another booking for the 2018 racing season, then you will receive:

A free £2 bet
A free drinks voucher
A voucher for £5 off at the turnstile for you to use at another race meeting in 2018
We will also enter you into a Prize Draw to win a table for 4 people in the Park Suite Restaurant at our race meeting on Monday 8th October.


How it works:

1. If you booked online for racing in 2017 and book again for 2018, you are qualified for the promotion.
2. The Racecourse will contact all those who are qualified by email before the start of the season with details of how to claim their voucher pack.

There's never been a better excuse to get a few more racedays in at Ponte!
