Catterick’s Flat season continues on Saturday 21 September with the return of the Yorkshire Beer Festival Race Day, in association with The Pennine Brewing Company.
The action packed seven-race card will kick off at 1.50pm with the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes and the last race is scheduled for 5.20pm.
The highlight of the afternoon comes at 4:10pm when the course will host the 2019 Catterick Twelve Furlong Series Final – sponsored by Constant Security. Now in its seventh year, the series final offers £20,000 in prize money and is open to those who have run in one of the qualifying races since the season started in June.
Fiona Needham, General Manager and Clerk of the Course said: “The Twelve Furlong Series brings some thrilling racing action to the track and last year we saw INDIA, half-sister to BIG ORANGE take the title. We’re looking forward to this year’s final and can’t wait to see who will be crowned Catterick’s 2019 Twelve Furlong Series Champion!”
Alongside the racing action, Pennine Brewing Co. will have twelve different ales and ciders for racegoers to sample throughout the afternoon. Based locally to the racecourse at Well, the Pennine Brewing Co. has several permanent brews, and their brewers also develop a number of seasonal specials throughout the year.
In addition, the Black Marcs will be playing live throughout the afternoon and after racing. The gates will be staying open longer than usual, until 6.30pm, allowing racegoers to enjoy the Beer Festival and live music into the evening once the racing has finished.
Emma Binnian, Sales & Marketing Manager said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the Pennine Brewing Co. back to Catterick for our second annual Yorkshire Beer Festival Race Day. With quality racing action, family entertainment, live music and a beer festival, there really is something for everyone to enjoy at this fixture!”
The racecourse supports the Racecourse Association’s #PaceYourself campaign to encourage responsible drinking at the course. Racegoers are reminded to pace themselves when enjoying their day at the races by allowing one soft drink in between each alcoholic drink.
As with all of Catterick Racecourse’s fixtures, accompanied under 18’s will be admitted free of charge and in addition to the indoor and outdoor play areas, there will also be bouncy castles and a roundabout in the Course Enclosure to keep any younger racing fans entertained throughout the day.
A big screen will also be at the course on the day to enable racegoers to see even more of the action from the track, as well as showing the big race action from Ayr Races – featuring the Ayr Gold Cup.
The gates will be open to the public from 11.50am. While the free shuttle bus will bring racegoers from Richmond Market Place to the racecourse approximately one hour prior to the first race.
Tickets will be available to purchase at the gates on the day, while advanced and group booking discounts are available online here.
