Don't miss Doncaster's last National Hunt fixture of the season, the prestigious Grimthorpe Chase with an Irish twist! For those who love a good party, we have an Irish band performing in the Grandstand Hall live after racing!☘️

Attracting some of the UK's top trainers and jockeys, we are sure to have an action-packed 2 days of National Hunt Racing on Town Moor!

Widely regarded as the perfect trial for The Grand National, Grimthorpe Chase is ran over 3 miles and 2 furlongs and is worth a whopping £55,000. Many horses who have tasted success at Grimthorpe have gone on to do amazing things including horses such as, Definitely Red, The Last Samurai and many more. Jockey Craig Nichol emphatically won the 2019 Grimthorpe Chase in style.

In addition to a thrilling day of racing on Saturday, there's also a packed 7 race card on the Friday.
