888 Sport Grimthorpe Chase Festival
Don't miss Doncaster's last National Hunt fixture of the 2018/19 season, the prestigious Grimthorpe Chase with an exciting 80s themed twist! For those party-goers, we have an exciting 80s tribute band playing live after racing!
Relive your youth with the best of Duran Duran, Wham, Bananarama, A-ha, Depeche Mode, Madonna, George Michael, U2 and the Eurythmics.
Attracting some of the Country's top trainers and jockeys, we are sure to have an action packed 2 days of National Hunt racing on Town Moor!
Run over 3 miles and 2 furlongs, the Grimthorpe Chase Handicap is worth £55,000 and is considered to be a trial for the Grand National. 2017 winner, Definitly Red, has since had success at Aintree in the Many Clouds Chase, the Grade 2 Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham and the 2018 Grade 2 Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby. The Brian Ellison trained gelding is considered for 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
In addition to a thrilling day of racing on the Saturday, there's also a packed 7 race card on the Friday.
