LADBROKES PRICES FOR YORK TOMORROW
14-My Very Own
FRIDAY ACTION AT THIRSK
Thirsk's penultimate meeting of the season takes place on Friday (24 August), when two of the feature races are supported by The European Breeders Fund.
The opening race scheduled for 2.10 p.m. is The European Breeders Fund Maiden Stakes, a contest for two-year-olds over six furlongs, while the most valuable race of the afternoon is the £12,000-added E.B.F. Classified '90' Stakes over one mile. Both these equivalent races last year were won by horses ridden by Kevin Darley, who went on to become the champion jockey for the first time.
The Tote Exacta Handicap Stakes, a race for stayers over two miles, completes the afternoon's highlights.
