Hereford Racecourse’s final fixture of the season is the inaugural Charity Raceday for St Michael’s – and we’re inviting you to join us and enjoy the day in style.

Experience a truly wonderful fine dining experience with a delicious two-course luncheon in the Rusty Bridge restaurant which is exclusive to St Michael’s on the day. Located on the ground floor of the main grandstand, there are stunning views from the room over the Racecourse and finishing straight where you can enjoy the day and all it has to offer from the comfort of your own table base.

The price per person is £80 (or £800 for a table of 10) and includes admission ticket, your own reserved table for the day, two-course served luncheon, complimentary racecards, waiter/waitress service, courier betting facilities and cloakroom facilities. Table sizes can be from 2 to 10.

There will also be a charity auction, entertainment and cash bar and the chance to watch the 100m Charity Dash, as well as the main race card.

Amateur jockeys have been invited to play a big part in the day, too by applying to take part in the Charity Flat Race; the final race of the day.

It is limited to 12 riders, who must each pledge to raise a minimum £1,500 for St Michael’s.

For amateur jockeys who have been accepted into the race, you can set-up a JustGiving page here
