Doncaster residents are being invited to a free evening of top-class sporting action this July.

Doncaster Racecourse is set to host the Doncaster Residents Racenight on Thursday, July 16, to thank the local community for their continued support and to encourage people who have never been horse racing before to give it a go.

The race night will feature a packed seven race card and will be completely free of charge for people living in DN postcode areas who book Family Enclosure tickets in advance, usually priced at £8.00 per person.

The Doncaster Residents’ Racenight follows the success of the racecourse’s previous free race days which gave local residents the opportunity to socialise with family, friends and colleagues while experiencing an evening of top quality flat racing.

Kieran Gallagher, executive director at Doncaster Racecourse, said: “This July’s Doncaster Residents’ Racenight is back by popular demand due to the great success of our previous events. The evening is a great opportunity for us to give something back to the local community and allow racing novices to come and experience the sport for no cost. Our free race meetings are a great way to introduce the thrill of a day at the races and offer great value for money to existing racing fans who live close to the Town Moor track and support us throughout the year.

“We expect this fixture to be really popular so encourage local residents to book their free tickets now to avoid disappointment of a fantastic night of socialising and sport.”

The Doncaster Residents’ Racenight will be closely followed by a free Racenight on Thursday 23 July for those living in the wider Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire areas. As with the Doncaster event, family enclosure tickets will be free of charge when booked in advance.

For both of the Residents’ Race nights, discounts will also be available on upgraded tickets with Grandstand tickets priced at £5 a saving of £10.50 per adult, County at £10, a saving of £14.50 per adult and Premier at £15, a saving of £19.50 per adult when booked in advance.

Free tickets are limited to four per address. Residents should use the promo code RESNIGHT to pre-book tickets.
