Yorkshire-based Amy Ryan, who last season became the first female rider to be crowned outright Britain’s Champion Apprentice Jockey, gives her support to the latest ‘Back a Winner by Train’ campaign from local train operators, First TransPennine Express (FTPE) and Northern Rail.
Amy, who rode 40 winners last season, said “Going to the races has never been as easy and popular as it is today.
“Getting there is also really easy and convenient and travelling by train offers punters great value with money off the cost of admission.”
Racegoers using the train will benefit from upto a £4 discount on admission into the Grandstand & Paddock enclosures at participating racecourses.
In addition to saving on admission, racegoers have the opportunity of enjoying £2 off a toteplacepot bet of £5 or more.
Customers who wish to take advantage of the ‘Back a Winner by Train’ promotion, need to collect a voucher from either their departing or arriving station, then can be presented at the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure at the desired course. Vouchers are not available on board trains.
Our annual Cheltenham Festival Preview Night, at Cartmel Racecourse, will be held on Thursday 9th March – commencing at 7.00pm.
2,000 Early Bird tickets will go on sale at half price on tuesday 17th January.
