First Live Music Event of 2015!


First Live Music Event of 2015!

We are fast approaching our first live music event of the year on Saturday 7th February, with live after racing entertainment from 80’s band “Wham Bam Duran”. We still have hospitality packages available so feel free to contact our sales on team 01902 390000 to book your tickets now. We may not have had any live music events since December, but that’s not to say we haven’t been busy.

Our Christmas party season was a huge success, and our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed party went down a treat! Oompa Loompa's were on hand to entertain throughout the night, much to the delight of the party goers.

Boxing Day this year was extremely busy, with all hospitality packages sold out and thousands of families coming through the turnstiles, to share the festive spirit with us and fellow race goers. Not even the snow was able to put people off from an extremely busy day. Boxing Day also proved to be a success not only for us, but also for the Godolphin team, who in the Boxing Day snow, continued their winning ways with Greatest Journey (pictured) taking the Class 3 penultimate race in the hands of Alistair Rawlinson.


2015 is looking like it is going to be another successful year for Saturday night entertainment after racing. There are live music and tribute nights to suit everyone’s tastes, a few highlights being:

Saturday 7th February – 80’s night with Wham Bam Duran

We’ve not been in short supply of racing since we last blogged, witnessing 13 fixtures in little over a month. La Estrella (pictured) is one of the most notable winners over this period, after success here at 1m4f in December, the 12 year old went on to win at fellow ARC and All-Weather Championship course Lingfield Park, equalling the all-weather wins record set last year at 26 by Stand Guard, who has since retired, it shouldn’t be long before La Estrella is turned out again in an attempt to break the record. From all-weather stalwarts on four legs to those on just two, king of the sand, Adam Kirby, notched his 1000th ever winner here just before the turn of the year, when he gave Copper Cavalier a fine ride for Robert Cowell and his owners. David Roberts, Managing Director of the racecourse, presented Adam with a bottle of fizz, surrounded by the jockeys he’d just fended competition off from as he has done on so many occasions here on the all-weather!
