Press Release 3rd November 2016 Exeter

Students with a valid student card have the opportunity to come racing at Exeter for free on Wednesday, November 9.

The annual student-free-entry day includes a  behind-the scenes-tour that starts an hour before the first race and gives an insight into a day at the races.

Ptit Zig, winner of a £100k hurdle at Auteuil this year, is also among many good past winners at the equaivalent meeting.

The first of seven races is under orders at 1pm and 188Bet and RGB Building Supplies sponsoring the card.
