The highlight of our second September meeting is the Dalby Screw Driver Handicap. In the early 19th century, ‘Screw Driver’ set the Pontefract pulses racing. He won at least 2 ‘Cup’ races! These consisted of four heats over 2 miles on the same day: the winner being the horse with the best aggregate score over the 8 miles! He is the earliest Pontefract course specialist on record!
This race is one of 7 exciting races on the card which gets underway just after 2pm!
