Once again, Pontefract Racecourse will have two Art of Racing Racedays in 2024. These racedays celebrate everything we know and love about The Sport of Kings!

On both Art of Racing days they’ll be looking for 7 guest tipsters to each preview one of the races on the day. These previews will be published online and in the racecards on the day with our tipsters invited to the course to share their knowledge before each race. They’ll also be looking for 7 judges with a keen eye to pick a Best Turned Out prize in each race. If you would like to apply please email

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, you’re certain to have a great day out at Pontefract Racecourse!

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