Unfortunately, we are unable to hold our usual raceday promotions (including the Wall of Fame, Yorkshire Postcode Promotion, Social Media VIPs and the Ponte Faithful) at the moment but hope to bring some of the promotions back later in the year or in 2022.


Normally we run several promotions throughout each season – for regular visitors to Pontefract as well as those that visit us just once a year.


For those who drive to the races and those who celebrate the social side of a day out.


For racing fanatics and for those enjoying a day at the races for the first time.


Click on each tab below for details of our offers which we hope to bring back when racing returns to full capacity:

Wall of Fame

The Wall of Fame will hopefully be back later in the year and once again, our racegoers are the stars.


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


If you can 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 2021 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 2022!



Ponte Walk of Fame

The Wall of Fame is getting bigger and better and, when restrictions allow, we’ll be making some of our own celebrities when Racegoers from the Wall of Fame will be forming the Ponte Walk of Fame! You could be one of our featured guests on the Walk of Fame in 2021 and, if you are, you’ll win some great prizes!

It's Champion

Don’t miss out on our It’s Champion promotion when it returns celebrating our champion trainer and jockey’s achievements during the previous season.


Richard Fahey took the 2020 leading trainer title, training 7 winners at Pontefract during the 2020 season.


Ben Curtis was the most winning jockey with 12 wins!


Every time either train or ride a winner at Pontefract, they’ll unlock a special offer on the course which will be valid until the published off time of the following race or 30 minutes 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 at each race meeting.


So with Richard Fahey and Ben Curtis, you could be on to a winner, even if your horse loses!

The Ponte Faithful

The Ponte Faithful campaign is not in operation at the moment.


Updates will appear when available.


If you made a booking online (or over the phone) and return to make another booking for the 2021 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 2021


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 4th October.




How it works:

1. If you booked online for racing in 2019 and book again for 2021, you are qualified for the promotion.
2. The Racecourse will contact all those who are qualified by email 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!
