After glorious weather blessed Beverley Racecourse’s family fun day on Bank Holiday Monday, racing returns to the Westwood next week.
The seven-race programme on Tuesday is set to start at 2.10pm. and includes this year’s renewal of The Annie Oxtoby Memorial Handicap Stakes – a contest for sprinters over five furlongs - supported by the Oxtoby family of Garton and Century Developments Ltd.
The afternoon’s feature race is The John Jackson Handicap Stakes over the extended mile.
The first of the seven races comprising The Beverley Middle-Distance Handicap Series takes place on Tuesday – a contest for three-year-olds.
Runners will accumulate points during this series of races over a-mile-and-a-half according to places obtained. The series culminates at Beverley on Sunday, August 25, with the owner of then overall winner receiving a bonus of £1,000.
This is the third year of the Series. Last year’s winner was the locally-owned Tribal Myth, trained at Hambleton near Thirsk by Kevin Ryan.
The giant screen will assist race-goers to follow all of the action on the track.
