Town Moor set for a busy year

Have your say

Doncaster’s opening meeting of the New Year takes place next Wednesday, January 8 - the first of 36 racedays in 2014 year on Town Moor.

The seven-race programme is set to begin at 12-40 pm with The Pegler Yorkshire Handicap, followed by The Maiden Hurdle.

The remaining five races are supported by Freebets, including the most valuable race of the afternoon, a Novices’ Chase over two miles and three furlongs, offering prize money of £10,000.

This race last year was won by Overturn, who went on to compete in Grade 1 races at both the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National meeting at Aintree.

The giant screen situated opposite the main stands will enable racegoers to see all of the action.
