If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend then a trip to Doncaster Races to see the Virgin Bet Grimthorpe Handicap Chase should be at the top of your list!
Run in Doncaster each year, The Grimthorpe Chase is a National Hunt steeplechase that contains 19 jump fences. The distance has varied over time, but currently sits at a little over 3 miles and 2 furlongs.
This strong test is frequently seen as a trial for the Aintree Grand National in April, as many winners (such as The Last Samuri and Definitely Red) have gone on to be favourites in the Merseyside race.
Love a bit of live sport on a weekend? Doncaster races have got you covered. This afternoon of jump racing promises several spirited races to enjoy, whether you prefer to be trackside, or watching on from hospitality. Make more of your March with our race event in Yorkshire.
The charm and allure of the weekend. Sunny days to cram in some easygoing fun with friends and family, enjoy some live sports, and generally unwind after a week of responsibilities.
