Raceday Information

Over 60 and fancy racing for free? This year we are introducing the OAP FREE DAY!

Simply apply for a free ticket by emailing amber@pontefract-races.co.uk prior to the race day. (Please note you will be asked for proof of age on entry)

Bring the under 18 grandkids for a completely free day out at the racecourse! We welcome racegoers of all ages and encourage the racing passion be spread across generations.

The 2nd meeting of the season also features the equine equivalent of the London Marathon! The Pontefract Marathon is the longest flat handicap race run in Britain! Did you know that Pontefract is also the longest continuous racing circuit in Europe? At 2m 136yds all round, you need a brave, staying horse to get home up the famous ‘Ponte’ hill!
