  • Racing enthusiasts invited to go “behind the scenes” at Epsom training yards

    If you’ve always wanted to find out what goes on at a racing stable and see horses in training on the gallops, this is your chance.

    Five Epsom-based trainers are opening their stables to the public on the morning of Sunday, 23 September.

    In the afternoon there’ll be a family fun day at Epsom racecourse with a tug of war, Shetland pony derby,plus an “It’s a Knockout competition”.

    Stephen Wallis, general manager of Epsom Downs Racecourse, said: “This is a really novel day, with something for racing enthusiasts of all ages.”

    The proceeds from the day will go to the Epsom Training and Development Fund.

    Tickets cost £5. For more information contact the organisers (tel: 01372 460401).
