There is action on and off the track at Lingfield Park on Good Friday.

The race course is hosting the finale to the All-Weather Championships and becomes the first race course to stage racing on Good Friday.

Some of the finest in racing will be galloping for glory as they vie to be named All-Weather Champion for 2014.

With a £1 million total prize fund on offer it is the richest all weather racecard ever staged in Europe.

There will also be marching bands, hands-on racing experience and entertainment for all the family.

Andrew Perkins Executive Director of Lingfield Park Resort says: “This is looking to be one of the biggest days Lingfield Park has ever staged.

‘It is a perfect day to come and try racing if you’ve never been before as the atmosphere will be electric.

“If you are new to the sport, there is nothing to fear as we will have an abundance of staff here on the day ready to answer all your questions or you can look at our website before hand where there is a brilliant section Your Day at the Races which gives handy guides on how to bet and an in-depth guide on the racehorse.

“But it isn’t a requirement to know anything before you arrive, we are proud of our reputation as one of the friendliest courses in the country and we know you’ll have a fantastic time here whether you’re a serious punter or completely new to the game.”
