Friday 19th April, 2019

A highlight in the northern racing calendar, the hugely popular Middleham Open Day returns this year on Good Friday, 19th April . This fabulous event showcases racing in Middleham’s stunning surroundings, offering a superb day out for racing fans and families alike.

Visitors to Middleham on Good Friday will be welcomed into training yards throughout the town, including Mark Johnston’s record-breaking stable where all will be invited to take in his fantastic facilities and watch swimming demonstrations at Kingsley House. Newly crowned Lycetts Team Champion Award winner Jedd O'Keeffe opens up the home of the inimitable Sam Spinner again this year, whilst Group 1 winning trainer Karl Burke will also be throwing open the gates of his Spigot Lodge yard. James Bethell’s Thorngill Stables will too be open for visitors, as will the yards of Micky Hammond, Ben Haslam, Julia Brooke, Andy Crook, Barry Keniry, Foulrice Park Racing and Chris Fairhurst.

Yards will be open from 9.30am until 1pm. The morning will also see a parade of the Bedale Foxhounds through the centre of the town at 11am, and a parade and jumping demonstration from James Bethell at his yard at around noon.

Events move to the beautiful location of Middleham’s Low Moor from 1.30pm. The afternoon’s entertainment kicks off with the Retraining of Racehorses (ROR) parade, followed by the ever popular and hotly contested Inter-Yard Team Challenge, incorporating the Donkey Derby. The Pony Club showjumping relay competition returns for this year, and there will be food and drink stalls on the moor to keep all visitors well fed and watered throughout the afternoon.
