Best of Both Worlds
It’s rare to find a raceday that is truly unique but join us at Haydock Park on Pertemps Swinton Hurdle Day and you’ll be at the only fixture in Britain which combines Jump and Flat racing.
A valuable card is headlined by the Grade Three Swinton Handicap Hurdle. Although a handicap race in name, some top horses have made their mark here with recent victors including the future Grade One winner Silver Streak (2018) and the hugely impressive Copperless who landed this race for the Olly Murphy in 2021.
The Flat racing action is headlined by the Listed Spring Trophy Stakes over seven furlongs and with the best of both worlds on show there really is something for everyone.
Haydock Park’s Retraining of Racehorses Ambassador, and 2019 Grand National Trial winner, Robinsfirth will join us for this fixture.
RoR is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses that have retired from racing. The charity promotes the versatility and adaptability of racehorses for other equestrian activities following their retirement from racing. The Horses for Courses scheme showcases the wide range of disciplines that racehorses go on to enjoy after their racing careers have ended, providing racegoers with an ongoing opportunity to meet and learn more about racing’s biggest stars – the horses!
