Saturday 1st August - The William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup
Get set for another super Saturday with The William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup; One of the highlights of our summer fixtures.
Run over a distance just short of a mile, the Summer Cup has proved a highly competitive race since its introduction into Thirsk’s racing calendar in 2012.
In its short history it has proved to be a benefit for Northern trainers and a graveyard for favourites, proven in 2017 when Florenza at 40/1 and Moonlight navigator at 20/1 battled it out, finishing in a thrilling dead heat. The race was no less thrilling in 2019 when Kylie Rules came from last to first to land the feature race for Ruth Carr at 20/1.
In addition, there will be live music from the brilliant Ezee Goin' throughout the day, bouncy castles for the children, along with activities the whole family can enjoy and all under 18's race free.
We enjoyed a bumper crowd last year so why not be part of it and join us for another action packed William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup raceday.
If you want to make your day extra special, book one of our hospitality packages before they sell out.
Premier, Paddock and Family Enclosure badges/tickets are now live along with our raceday hospitality packages.
All tickets purchased in advance of the raceday at the discounted rates are subject to a 75p booking-fee per ticket/badge. For larger group bookings, however, the booking-fee is capped and will not exceed £12 per transaction, for example, a booking of 50 tickets made in a single transaction will attract a booking fee of £12.
Postage & Packaging
If your order is simply for tickets-only for the Paddock or Family enclosures then you will have the option to either Print-Your-Own E-tickets or for the Racecourse to print and post them to you. If you request the Racecourse posts them there will be a postage and packaging charge of £2 added to the order.
All Paddock Enclosure Packages (which include vouchers for food/drink/racecard/etc) and all Premier Enclosure badges and/or packages will automatically be mailed directly to you about 2 weeks in advance of the raceday itself.
For those bookings very close to the raceday itself Thirsk Racecourse reserves the right to leave the tickets/badges at the Collection Point.
