Racing: Free entry at Musselburgh

Have your say

Musselburgh Racecourse will offer free entry through the turnstiles at its Saints and Sinners Raceday on Friday, November 8.

The East Lothian course has announced the National Hunt meeting will be a free day for racegoers in an initiative supported by the course’s bookmakers.

Long established charity Saints and Sinners Club of Scotland is sponsoring the race day on behalf of Victim Support Scotland, and the funds raised will be donated to VSS.

Commercial manager, Mary-Ann Sandercock, said: “With the generous support of our bookmakers we are offering free entry and hope to raise the profile of horseracing and what we are doing at Musselburgh.

“It’s a great opportunity for first time racegoers to come and see what our thrilling sport has to offer. We are also delighted to welcome back to Musselburgh the Saints and Sinners charity and a good attendance will boost their fund-raising efforts.”

The free tickets must be booked in advance online. To find out more and to reserve tickets, visit
