Saturday 9th May - Evening Racing in Support of The ABF The Soldiers' Charity
Thirsk Racecourse is proud to continue our support of The ABF The Soldiers' Charity for this evening fixture. The ABF give a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans from the British Army, and their immediate families, when they are in need.
This fixture falls on the revised 'May Day' Bank Holiday weekend, changed to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, making this an extra special and poignant evenings racing.
VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.
The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events.
We will be joined by not only The ABF, but our two local regiments, 4th Regiment Royal Artillery and 6th Regiment Royal Logistic Corps.
It will be a great evenings racing and one for all the family to enjoy.
Any advanced ticket or package bookings made within 7 days or less of raceday will not be posted and will be available for collection only. A £3 administration fee will apply.
