Our special charity meeting to raise awareness and funding for Marie Curie, who support people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
It was great day of racing on a glorious afternoon at High Yarridge, where we had the added bonus of an extra race due to the number of entries.
There was a great afternoon of racing at High Yarridge for our Derby Day meeting, when due to the number of entries in the 'totepool Ladies Day is on Sunday 25th June Handicap Chase' the race was divided in two, meaning the racegoers were able to watch 8 races.
One of the featured races of the day the 'Hexham and Northern Marts Handicap Hurdle', was won by the 15/8 favourite Desert Island Dusk, from Captain Brown at 16/1 and Verona Opera at 11/2 in third.
A great evening of racing at High Yarridge to celebrate Northumberland Day. The racecourse thank all of you who attended the meeting and our race day sponsors, who took up our offer of paying for a race to be named after them.
Thank you to our sponsors:
