He added: “I would to thank everyone for engaging with our officers, taking an interest in policing and talking to us about what we do.

“We have worked closely in partnership with Doncaster Council, the event organisers at the race course to ensure a great day is had by all.
“I am grateful for the dedication, enthusiasm and positivity that my officers have demonstrated over the past few days.
“A huge thank you to everyone involved.”
