Racing Welfare

Malton Open Day, sponsored by Arena Racing Company (ARC) and organized by Racing Welfare, returns Sunday, Sept. 12, and will be held in conjunction with the start of the inaugural National Racehorse Week, celebrating the racehorse and the staff who care for them. The event will feature 12 training yards in and around Malton, which will open their doors to the public, offering the opportunity to see behind the scenes at one of the most prominent and historic racing centers in the U.K. A slew of equine stars will be on show, along with a chance to speak to the trainers and the stable staff who provide their day-to-day care.

Tickets are on sale at www.maltonopenday.co.uk, with the opportunity for buyers to take advantage of early bird ticket prices before the end of July. Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £6.50 for concessions (over 65's) including a program. Any tickets booked online after July 31 are £12.50 for adults and £8.50 for concessions. Visitors under 16 attend for free.

Yards will open from 8:45 a.m until 12 noon, with buses provided to transport attendees between the various yards. Among the horses in the spotlight this year are a number of Royal Ascot winners, including Richard Fahey trained Perfect Power, who won the G2 Norfolk S. this year, as well as John Quinn's Buckingham Palace S. winner Highfield Princess.

The event will be raising funds for organizers Racing Welfare, which provides a wide range of advice and support services for people working in or retired from racing, and offers a range of events, trips and activities both in the local community and virtually. A total of 1,019 individual beneficiaries from the Northern region received support from Racing Welfare last year.
