We’re delighted to host our first ever A Question of Racing, which will take place half an hour after the last race, on Haldon Gold Cup Day in support of Love Devon.

 

Among the panel is Devon-born leading female jockeys Bryony Frost and Lizzie Kelly and trainer David Pipe who will answer questions fielded by the BBC’s David Fitzgerald in support of the charity Love Devon.

 

Tickets are just £5 in advance, or £10 on the door to come and listen to an hour of entertaining sporting banter to round off Haldon Gold Cup Day.

 

Buy your admission ticket to your basket and add your Question of Racing ticket to your basket on your way to checkout.
