Family friendly


Our last Sunday race meeting of the season is our annual In-The-Zone Family Day on the 20th August.

On this special Sunday we set up 7 zones around the racecourse to suit everyone’s interests and find out more about the world of racing! So whether you fancy reading the Racing Post with a tea or coffee in the Quiet Zone or listening to an Industry Expert for a behind the scenes talk in the Winners Enclosure to learn more about horseracing!

There will also be the Horse Zone, Newcomers Zone, Tipster Zone and Kids Zone!

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

Gates will be opened from 11:30am with the first race likely to be around 2pm (timings will be confirmed nearer the race meeting).

Tickets 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.
