Ascot Racecourse marks the conclusion of its 2016/17 Jumps Season alongside a celebration of the British countryside at its Spring Family Raceday on Sunday 2nd April.

Together with a seven-race Jumps card, racegoers can look forward to a host of countryside activities including a working dog demonstration, a bygone country skills demo, willow bank making, a visit from Peter Rabbit and The Gruffalo, an animal petting farm and falconry and duck displays. Children, who gain free entry, will be able to try their hand at pony riding. Whilst adults and children alike each year look forward to the annual Lamb National.

Featuring six Herdwick sheep, infamous ‘Red Ram’, ‘Mint Sauce’ and friends will take to the Queen Anne Lawns for a race over mini fences in between racing.

With free entry for children and no charge for the activities on site it is excellent value for families and has something for all ages with so much going on celebrating the British countryside both on and off the track.”
