Afternoon Racing at Sandown Park
A fantastic afternoon of racing is on the horizon as we welcome an exciting new fixture to the Sandown Park racing calendar! This fixture forms part of the Sky Bet Sunday Series, which is a new exciting concept for British Racing that takes place this summer which The Jockey Club is extremely delighted to be part of.
Here at Sandown Park we are part of the exciting new £600,000 Sky Bet Sunday Series.
This fixture is one of the three which comprises the Series (the other two being at Musselburgh and Haydock Park) and will boast nearly £200,000 in prize-money. This new Sunday fixture will feature seven races, most with 25-minute gaps between races, and will be broadcast in its entirety on ITV4.
The Sunday Series Bonus will see £100,000 paid to the owners of any horse which wins a race at each of the three fixtures, with the bonus being split equally should there be more than one winner. There is also a Sunday Series Bonus of £100,000 for any jockey who rides a total of seven winners across the three fixtures.
In addition, £10,000 will be awarded to the staff of the stable, which sends out most winners during the Series, while Sky Bet will offer increased Best-Turned-Out prizes of £250 per race (£125 to the winner, £75 for second and £25 for third).
