Head to Newbury for a day of competitive Flat racing in support of a worthy cause. A high quality seven-race card forms part of a day held in support of Starlight, who do remarkable work granting the wishes of terminally ill children.

It’s a great opportunity to try the Punter’s Package for a £10 food and drink voucher plus a £2 bet or experience one of our luxury hospitality suites or panoramic restaurants.

Please note that race and gate opening times  and the race programme for this event are currently provisional and will be finalised in due course.

British Racing is in close communication with the Government about current public health matters in the UK and the advice is to continue the business of the country as usual, while adhering to the latest public health advice. We will of course be mindful of any guidance recommended to us by the government, British Horseracing and other advisory bodies and will apply measures as appropriate. Currently, we are scheduled to race as planned on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March. There will be hand sanitisers, posters and public announcements across the site.  We would like to remind all our customers that any ticket purchasers will be entitled to a full refund in the event of any raceday not taking place.
