Helmsley Horse Races will be held at Duncombe Park on Sunday February 12.
Organised by the Sinnington Hunt, the Races are a traditional form of point-to-pointing, which is confined to amateur trainers and jockeys. Horses and riders compete to see who can complete the three miles and 18 fences in the shortest time.
There will be at least six races, with the stunning view of Duncombe Park as a backdrop. Bookmakers will be on site for those who fancy a flutter, and the ladies of Sinnington Hunt will be serving a hog roast, homemade soup, delicious cakes and other refreshments. Picnicking is also a possibility; cars are admitted to the site so you can serve your goodies direct from your boot.
Information about the runners and riders will be detailed on a race card which will be available to purchase on the day.
Admission £10.00, first race 12.30. Everyone welcome.
