The first race meeting of the year at Pontefract Racecourse, the Easter Tuesday Season Opener!

The 2023 season kicks off on Tuesday 11th April, so why not come down to the racecourse and enjoy some great action out on the track from the equine stars of the sport.

With excellent views of the course from all of the enclosures, the option of private boxes/ hospitality packages, a selection of dining delights and drink outlets, it really is a great way to spend a day!

Gates will be opened from 12pm with the first race likely to be around 2pm (timings will be confirmed nearer the race meeting).

Tickets for the Easter Tuesday Season Opener can be purchased in advance via the Pontefract Racecourse website or on the day at the gate, both cash and card accepted. Under 18’s go free.

Admission prices range from £5 to £22, tickets can also be purchased at the gate on the day.
