On Friday, June 14, a night of racing will be held at the Banbury United clubhouse, and will feature eight races, projected onto a large screen, with race goers able to bet on the outcome of each race.

Punters can also buy a horse or jockey in each race and if it wins you will receive a prize.

The final race will see each horse being auctioned and named by the successful bidder, with a portion of the combined bids going to the owner of the winning horse.

Doors open at 6.30pm, with a 7.00pm first race time and tickets are just £10.00 which includes a fish and chips supper prepared by Pollocks Event Catering. All proceeds are in aid of BYHP.

BYHP events co-ordinator Rachel Young said: “It promises to be a fun night out, the bar will be full swing and betting facilities will be available and we have a professional compere for the evening who will explain how the betting system works.”

Tickets can be obtained in advance from, by telephone on 01295 259 442 or on the door on the night.
