RACEGOERS will have an extra opportunity to enjoy the action at Warwick Racecourse after it was awarded a further raceday for this November.

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has announced that Warwick will host a fixture on Thursday, 29th November – taking the number of fixtures held at the racecourse this season up to 19.

The afternoon fixture has been transferred to Warwick from Towcester Racecourse, after the Northamptonshire venue went into administration earlier this year.

It will feature a seven-race strong card and comes just eight days after the Winter Warmer takes place on Wednesday, 21st November.

Andre Klein, general manager at Warwick Racecourse, said: “We are very excited at the prospect of staging an additional fixture at Warwick on 29th November and want to give as many racegoers as possible the chance to enjoy the day.

“It’s another great opportunity for people to enjoy racing here at Warwick and we will be putting on reduced entry prices for this bonus fixture than our regular race days.

“Our popular hospitality boxes have filled up for all of our other remaining fixtures in 2018, so this new raceday will give businesses an opportunity to host clients, customers or their staff in the Paddock Suite.

“Warwick continues to go from strength to strength as one of the leading small jumps tracks in the country and we hope that racegoers take advantage of this extra opportunity to see what we have to offer at the racecourse.”

Gates open at 10.05am ahead of the first race at 12.05pm.

Entry to race day will be included in season memberships. Under 18s go free on the day, when with a full paying adult.

The Kingmaker Restaurant will be open on the day, with a three course lunch with impressive views over the track, a race card and arrival drink for £70.

Tickets start from £10 for adults, £5 concessions and are available from www.warwickracecourse.co.uk
