Huddersfield Town Events Department is organising an afternoon of fun at famous Knavesmire at York for fans to enjoy during the closed season.

On Friday 12 July 2019, relax with friends and enjoy the splendour of the County Stand and some of the best horse racing in the north of England at York Race’s John Smith’s Meeting featuring the William Hill Summer Stakes and a total prize money of £150,000.

Your day will start by meeting up at around 10am (subject to change) at Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top, where brunch will be served before boarding your Stotts coach to York, beer and soft drinks will be served during the journey.

Arriving at the Knavesmire, you will be given a Racecard to study before enjoying nearly four hours of live horse racing from the County Stand, which includes Grandstand, Paddock and Clocktower enclosures or the viewing lawns with winning post view. There are many bars, restaurants and lounges to choose from – CLICK HERE to view the facilities. Please note food and drink at York Racecourse is not included in the package.

The first race is at 2.05pm, then after the final race at 5.30pm you will be transported back to Cedar Court arriving back mid-evening in Huddersfield.

In the County Stand gentlemen are required to wear a jacket, collared shirt and tie, many racegoers like to dress up and step out in style for a day at York Racecourse. There is no formal dress code for ladies however, most choose to dress up for a day at the races – think wedding guest attire.  Lots of female racegoers do like to wear dresses, high heeled shoes together with hats or fascinators however it’s most important that you feel comfortable and enjoy your day!

If we’re lucky enough to experience a heat wave, the dress code for gentlemen may be relaxed!
