Andy Clifton, Head of Communications at Newbury Racecourse, added: “Both Newbury and Al Shaqab are keen to get more young people involved in racing. We hope that giving students and people under 23 a great day out at one of British Flat racing’s premier days free of charge will ignite their enthusiasm for the sport.”
