Mar 28 2017

The 2017 season at Royal Windsor Racecourse gets underway on Monday 10 April with plenty to look forward to over the summer and with a brand new look.

A total of twenty seven fixtures will take place between April and October, with highlights including the return of the Sky Bet Summer Sprint Series and £75,000 Finale, which takes place on Monday 21 August.

Other feature events at the Berkshire track include Gentlemen’s Day on Saturday 1 July, which is part of the Best of British Festival and Ladies Evening on Monday 31 July, featuring the fifth leg of the Silk Series, a £100,000 series of races exclusively for female jockeys.

For 2017, Royal Windsor Racecourse is delighted to introduce two new initiatives to reward loyal customers and make sure that racing continues to offer fantastic value. In collaboration with sponsors Sky Bet, Royal Windsor Racecourse is delighted to introduce a new ‘Flexi Ticket’ that will allow access to all ten of the Summer Sprint Series fixtures and the Finale for just £99.

In addition, the ‘Royal Run’ loyalty card will allow any racegoer who attends three fixtures at Royal Windsor Racecourse to get their fourth ticket for free (terms apply). Racegoers need to only stamp their card and ticket at the Racecourse entrance when they attend to qualify.

Simon Williams, Executive Director at Royal Windsor Racecourse, commented, “We are really looking forward to the start of the season here at Royal Windsor, for what promises to be an action packed summer.”

“As well as the racing, we have plenty of fantastic events planned, with the Best of British Festival in July a highlight, featuring Vernon Kay, Tony Hadley and jazz from Ronnie Scott’s. The Sky Bet Summer Sprint Series promises to be another highlight of our season, along with our highest class races such as the Listed August Stakes and the Group 3 Winter Hill Stakes.”
