Fun for all ages at Newton Abbot Racecourse's Family Raceday

There’s something for all the family at Newton Abbot Racecourse this Sunday, 22 July as they prepare for their ever-popular Family Raceday.

Not only are there seven races on the card for horseracing fans, but they will also be joined by Plymouth Albion star, Eoghan Grace, and his team of coaches in the Family Enclosure who will be running a series of fun rugby games for children.

But that’s not all, children will also be able to enjoy free face painting, balloon modelling and a spot of magic in the Family Enclosure between 2pm and 4:30pm.

The first 200 children through the gates on Sunday will also receive a free children’s racecard, packed with fun facts, games and child-friendly information on the day’s runners.

The first race on Family Day will begin at 1:50pm with gates opening at 11:50am. The final race of the day will begin at 5:20pm.

A day at the races is great value with the racecourse’s free entry policy for all children aged 16 and under, alongside students with a valid photographic student ID / NUS card.

Tickets for Sunday’s Family Day are on sale now priced at just £12 for Course Enclosure and £19 for Paddock Enclosure. To buy tickets visit or call 01626 353235.
