Fixture Overview

Our first Saturday meeting of 2018 and a large crowd is expected to enjoy some top jumps racing combined with excellent entertainment which will last well into the evening.

And there’s an opportunity to switch into party mood early in the day as racegoers will be greeted at the main entrance in Whitletts Road by DRMS N ROSES who play a selection of well known tunes in their unique style which is a fusion of traditional Scottish sounds and pop and rock.

The two feature races are the three mile handicap chase for the Hugh Barclay Challenge Trophy and two mile four furlong handicap hurdle for the Craigie Cup.

The latter was won in 2017 by the Micky Hammond trained Silver Tassie, ridden by Joe Colliver who trounced the field to win by six lengths.

The Craigie Cup went the way of course specialist Desert Cry for trainer Donald McCain, jockey Brian Hughes and owners the NYPD Partnership which includes former Manchester United manager David Moyes.

After racing top showband WATERFRONT will be appearing for three hours in the Horseshoe Bar within the Club Stand playing their own high temp covers of classic hits.
