Trainers Open DAY

 

Before racing begins, the Trainer's Open Day holds the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of Epsom’s training yards. You'll see the horses working on the gallops, and then visit the stars of the show at their homes on the yards.

Free family entertainment

 

This day is ideal for the little ones with plenty to keep them entertained alongside the horseracing! Activities often include face painters, animal encounters, pony rides, bouncy castles and much more. Last year's Family Fun Day was Adventure themed, and a new theme for next summer will be announced soon!

Childrens running races

 

The day wouldn't be complete without the annual running races! There are three races throughout the afternoon along the final furlong of the racecourse, split into age categories; under 5’s, under 8’s and under 11’s. Entries fill up fast so please ensure that you pre-register by the Parade Ring on the day, to guarantee your child’s spot!
