FIZZ FOR 4 PACKAGE AVAILABLE TO BRIGG RACING FANS
Horse racing fans in the Brigg area, and those who like a flutter through the town's bookies, are looking forward to the next meeting at Lincolnshire's own course.
Market Rasen Racecourse is getting ready to host its most prestigious race meeting of 2019 - Summer Plate Ladies’ Day on Saturday, 20th July.
The fixture attracts one of the largest attendances of the year as well as the cameras of ITV Racing.
For the first time the races are sponsored by Betway, which also backs the famous Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. The group has been at the forefront of the online gambling industry since 2006.
The day, held in association with Lincs FM, combines a great Lincolnshire social occasion and fantastic fashions with top class sport, featuring the Listed £50,000 Betway Summer Plate, the most sought-after prize in British jump racing during the summer. There is also the Listed £40,000 Betway Summer Hurdle.
Visitors are encouraged to buy their tickets in advance. Admission to Tattersalls and the Lawn Enclosure is still available, while the popularity of the County Enclosure, VIP Enclosure and VIP Picnic Lawn means they are already sold out. However, a small number of restaurant places are still available for those racing fans who wish to be able to access the County Enclosure.
There is something for everyone on the day, including The Style Awards being held in partnership with Marshall’s Yard shopping centre in Gainsborough and entertainment after racing at the Party in the Paddock with a live DJ set by Artful Dodger.
Artful Dodger comprises MC Alistair and DJ Dave Low and is established as a most successful UK garage act. Alastair brings the chart-topping brand to festivals around the world, linking up with Dave Low, co-owner of the record label Public Demand.
Racegoers are encouraged to dress to impress and enter the Marshall’s Yard Style Awards for a chance to win £5,000 in prizes and watch fabulous fashion shows throughout the afternoon on the Brocklesby Lawn within the Tattersalls Enclosure.
Nadia Powell, General Manager, Market Rasen Racecourse, said: “Betway Summer Plate Ladies’ Day, in association with Lincs FM, is one of the most popular social and sporting occasions of the year in Lincolnshire and always draws in a big crowd. We are very pleased to welcome Betway as the new sponsor of the races at our prestigious mid-summer meeting.
“This year’s Style Awards will be bigger and better than ever and we are delighted to be working with Marshall’s Yard to put on a great show for our visitors.
“We are also thrilled that our Party in the Paddock after racing will star a DJ set with Artful Dodger who will round off a wonderful day by encouraging our visitors to dance into the early evening.”
