United House Group Day And Firework Spectacular

Review & Results

Saturday 2nd November 2013

Family Day

Ascot's first meeting of the new 2013/2014 Jumps season features the £100,000 United House Gold Cup Chase over three miles. Key supporting races are The Byrne Group Handicap Chase, and the competitive William Hill Handicap Hurdle, which takes place over two miles.

The Plaza Lawns will offer a selection of thrilling rides, with a few tamer rides for the under-10s. Rides are free of charge until 4pm, when they will cost £1 per ride (donated to local charities).

The fireworks spectacular begins after racing at 6pm.

All family entertainment is in the Grandstand Admission area so all racegoers can participate.
