Sunday 1st August - The William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup
Get set for another super raceday with The William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup; One of the highlights of our summer fixtures. Originally held on a Saturday, this years William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup will take place on Sunday 1st August.
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.
We expect a bumper crowd so why not be part of it and join us for another action packed William Hill Thirsk Summer Cup raceday.
