Our second Family Sunday is the Tribute Bands Family Day! With a variety of acts performing before and after racing, there’ll not only be great music on offer but a really fun family atmosphere!
Sunday racedays have always been extra special for Ponte racegoers. Our renowned Sunday fixtures not only feature the best racing of the year with over £100,000 worth of prize money on offer on each day, but they are also the 3 fixtures each season dedicated to families.
As well as special events on each Sunday raceday, there will also be a funfair, face painting, circus, free sweets, activity packs and racecards for the kids, pony rides, trips to the starts of races AND a ‘Hunt The Golden Horseshoe’ competition on every family day!
It’s also the 12th Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer festival which kicks off at Ripon on Saturday 20th July and concludes with this Ponte Family Day on Sunday 28th July. With racing throughout the White Rose county all week, it’s a Festival the remember for racing enthusiasts.
There’s some stunning action on the track as well with the Listed Pomfret Stakes being the feature. Mick Appleby’s globe trotting Big Country took the race back in 2018 before going on to compete in Group races in Norway and Sweden. Who’ll take the honours in 2019?
