Officially opening the UK flat turf season, the Unibet Lincoln Raceday showcases world-class racing at the heart of Doncaster on Town Moor. The highlight of the race card is the Unibet Lincoln, a heritage Handicap worth £100,000 in prize money.
Why is the Raceday called the Lincoln?
The Unibet Lincoln has run at Doncaster since 1965 when it was transferred from the former Lincoln Racecourse. The race itself has run since 1849 and is a race rich in history. The Lincoln Handicap is in fact one half of the Spring Double with The Grand National held 2 weeks later. However; winning the double is no easy feat in fact the only jockey to have ever won both legs, was Dave Dick way back in 1956!
Back to 2020, and will Jockey James Doyle score a hat trick, having won the race on the last 2 outings, first in 2018 on Addeybb and again in 2019 on Auxerre, he’s surely one to watch.
And after a cold bleak winter with unfortunate abandonments the racecourse team is excited to welcome the flat back in style! Entertainment for the UNIBET Lincoln includes music from Brass Band 'Flat Cap Brass' and a live performance from Chasing Mumford, The Official 'Mumford & Sons Tribute.' Grandstand Tickets are just £20! Flat caps are a must wear item.
Introducing the Magical World of Racing
Fresh from the success at the RCA Showcase Awards with their Dinosaur inspired family fun days, the Doncaster team have now launched a Harry Potter inspired Family Fun Day.
Of course; racing is free for U18’s and the launch of Magical World of Racing on March 29th has all the makings of a fantastic family day out.
On arrival visit Professor Dumblecaster (see what we did there) and his magical cap, children can then make their own wand and learn a spell or two, before Professor Pout inducts them into the Magical World of Racing.
Take a turn on a FREE Unicorn Ride (even the ponies are joining in), but beware of the smoke breathing dragon, with his impressive 18ft wings who will be making appearances throughout the day, as he hunts down his baby dragon...yes that’s right two dragons!
To top the day off, there’s all the fun of the fair, and an owl display by Wild Owls, and yes you heard it right Doncaster’s first Shetland Unicorn Race!
A family ticket to the Magical World of Racing is just £20. All wizards welcome!
