Malton Open Day returns for 2023 on Sunday, 10th September. The day will run in a slightly amended format, removing the need to queue for buses; this year, visitors should drive directly to the 11 yards, with car parking available at each location. For 2023, Racing Welfare has linked with York Racecourse to allow Malton Open Day attendees to see behind the scenes of a training yard before heading to York Racecourse in the afternoon to enjoy the YorkMix Family Sunday.
Meet York Class One scorer Great State at Richard Fahey’s Musely Bank or the ever-popular Highfield Princess at John Quinn’s Settrington-based yard. Along with getting up close to Malton’s superstars, you can understand what goes into training a racehorse by meeting the teams of staff that work behind the scenes to ensure Malton’s racehorses are the best looked after, happiest and most successful in the country. Combined tickets can be purchased from the Malton Open Day website to allow the opportunity to attend Malton Open Day throughout the morning and head off to York Racecourses’ YorkMix Family Sunday when yards close. Many of the horses trained in Malton will line up at York, and the day delivers the opportunity to follow the horses on their journey from their stables to the winning post.
Combined tickets for Malton Open Day and York Races are available to be purchased in advance of the event from the Malton Open Day website.
