Thank You!!! A Return of the Magic! - Cartmel Racecourse

CARTMEL NEWS

Thank you very much to everyone who joined us this past weekend for racing. Yesterday the 19th July we welcomed what we now know to be the biggest crowd in UK horse racing since March 2020 (sorry Ascot about your Test Events). We won’t hold on to the title for long as we know York are sold out this weekend (to their full capacity) but we will bask in our glory for a few more days.
It was tremendous to see so many happy faces and of course the weather was so kind to us – this brought some challenges in keeping all of the horses cool, but we all dug-in and worked together to make sure there was plenty of cooling going on around the site. We have our special cooling fans for use before and after each race and a very willing team with lots of buckets (thank you team).
A very welcome return.
