Have your say

Musselburgh Racecourse has teamed up with the Edinburgh Evening News to give one reader the perfect start to 2016.

The Totepool New Year’s Day Race meeting is ideal for those looking to continue the festive party atmosphere – and we’ve got two champagne packages to give away.

The lucky winner will be invited to attend the January 1 event with a guest and both will be treated to a Pommery Pop Champagne Package, worth a total of £100.

The prize includes race admission, a race programme and an individually-sized bottle of Pommery Pop Champagne for each person - as well as two return bus tickets from Edinburgh City Centre.

The race meeting itself is one of the Feature Fixtures at Musselburgh and watching horses over jumps is guaranteed to provide thrills.

A seasonal twist to the afternoon is the chance to soak in the atmosphere of one of the most historic amateur athletic events in the world, The New Year Sprint, which attracts athletes from across the country.

Organisers have forecast that this year’s event is set to be the biggest and best to date - not least because it marks the start of the racecourse’s landmark 200th anniversary year.

The event will take place on Friday, January 1, with the first race under starter’s orders at 12.25pm and the final event of the afternoon starting at 3.20pm.

So, to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize, simply answer the following question:
