Saturday 27 August : Totepool Beverley Bullet Day

First Race 2pm

Our most prestigious race day of the season showcases with only the fastest horses and top quality racing.

Our feature race today is The Beverley Bullet Stakes. A fast and furious dash up the five furlong course notorious for its stiff uphill finish, some of the classiest sprinters around will be heading to Beverley to battle it out in the thrilling highlight of our richest race day.

As well as the 'proper' races, don't miss the Charles Owen pony racing also taking place today. Many well-known jockeys have come up through the pony racing ranks, so see if you can spot a Frankie Dettori or a Hayley Turner of the future in today's pony racing.

Gates open at 11.30am with the last race provisionally 5.20pm.

Sunday 28 August : A Sunday Hop

First Race 1.50pm

Our bank holiday family raceday with live music and a beer festival is a great day out for all the family.

Relaxation is the name of the game on this laid back Sunday afternoon.
