It's the mystery act you've all been waiting for since we released our feature music evening details last year. Today we launched the news that performing on Friday 29 August at the racecourse, live after an evening race meeting will be UB40.

Founded in Moseley, and named after the form they used to fill out to collect their employment benefits, the Unemployment Benefit, form 40, the international reggae group have since gone on to have a few number 1's, including famous hits such as "I Got You Babe", "Can't Help Falling In Love" and "Red Red Wine". Worldwide the band have sold 70 million records, and so will be the biggest band to ever perform at Wolverhampton Racecourse.

After a cracking music evening in 2013 featuring Scouting For Girls, we hope this year's event will be even bigger and better, book your tickets now via the website or over the phone, hospitality packages are available for the evening including the fabulous Horizons Restaurant Package and excellent Ringside Restaurant Package, which so many of you enjoy on our tribute and live band nights, these are expected to sell out fast so book early to avoid disappointment!

It promises to be another fantastic evening of entertainment at the racecourse, keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter for latest news on the band and maybe even a competition or two.

Year of the Horse

As I type up this blog, Luke Morris is putting in a top class performance out on the track, victorious in our first three races on today's card, the Year of the Horse is looking like it could be a really lucky one for the Wolverhampton regular!

The Chinese New Year is approaching, and this year from January 31 it will be the 'Year of the Horse'. To celebrate the heart and soul of the sport of kings we've put on a competition to win a fabulous prize. The competition is one for all of you digital individuals with the week long competition taking place on Facebook and Twitter. With nearly 10,000 of you following us now we hope we'll get some cracking entries.

So, the competition, all you have to do is like, share and comment with your New Year's Resolutions on our original competition Facebook status ( or for all of you Tweeters out there, re-tweet and reply to one of our competition tweets (@WolvesRaces) with your New Year's Resolutions. It's as easy as that!

The best New Year's Resolution, as judged by our judging panel, will get a table for 4 in the stylish Horizons Restaurant, which offers the best seats in the racecourse, for a meeting of their choice before July 31 2014, and we're even throwing in a bottle of wine. Pick your meeting wisely and you may even get to see another globetrotting superstar, like Jakkalberry, who won our class 2 last Friday evening in comfortable fashion.

Get on over to our social media feeds now and get your entries in! Good Luck!
