Shaquille Will Be One Of The Highlights Of The ARC Malton Open Day

Shaquille |

The annual ARC Malton Open Day, featuring trainer Julie Camacho's dual Group 1-winning sprinter Shaquille (GB) (Charm Spirit {Ire}), has been set for Sept. 10.

Part of the National Racehorse Week initiative, the Malton Open Day–organised by racing charity Racing Welfare–sees 11 trainers, including Camacho, open their yards to the public. In addition, a new partnership with York Racecourse for 2023 lets visitors continue their family day out at the racecourse's YorkMix Family Sunday Raceday. There will be regular appearances by popular children's character, Bluey, throughout the day, as well as free bouncy castles and free face painting for children. Proceeds of ticket sales will go towards Racing Welfare's wide-ranging support services for everyone working in the industry. Combined tickets for both the ARC Malton Open Day and the YorkMix Family Sunday Raceday are available to purchase at the early bird price of £15 with all under 18s free. Entry to the Malton Open Day only costs £7.50. Prices will increase to £17.50 and £10, respectively, beginning on Sept. 1. For more information, and to purchase tickets, please visit the Malton Open Day website.

Racing Welfare's Head of Community Engagement, Adam Ferguson, said, “We are thrilled to offer the public such a wonderful opportunity to get up close with some of North Yorkshire's finest equine stars, and thanks go to the trainers for their support in opening their yards to the public. The partnership with York Racecourse this year really does make the Malton Open Day the ultimate family day out, and we look forward to seeing lots of racing fans of all ages enjoying the numerous activities whilst helping raise much-needed funds for our charity.”
