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.




LADIES NIGHT AT REDCAR




It's glamour all the way at Redcar on Saturday evening (25 August), with the annual 'Ladies Night' at the seaside course set to begin at 5.20 p.m. (gates open at 3.30 p.m.)

A range of prizes for the ladies adjudged to be the best-dressed on the night include free bets provided by Ladbrokes, the Tote and Stanley Racing, along with prizes given by Market Cross Jewellers, O'Grady's Hotel, Pub & Restaurant, Aldwark Manor Hotel, Golf and Country Club, while there are ladies and gents watches provided by Print & Promotional Services Ltd. and a meal for two in the superb Crow's Nest Restaurant at the racecourses next year, given by Romfords Caterers. Other prize-givers include Carlsberg-Tetley, Costcutter Supermarket, the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet at York, Michael Gerard and Morrisons Petrol Station.


On the track, the feature races are The Rycroft Mercedes-Benz Handicap Stakes over the straight mile and The W S Atkins - Faithful & Gould Handicap Stakes over one mile, three furlongs.
