Plumpton Racecourse will play host to the Injured Jockeys Raceday on Monday December 1.

Representatives from the Injured Jockeys Fund will be raising awareness of the charity and raising money for its work.

And there will be a festive atmosphere at the Christmas Raceday on Monday December 15, with mulled wine and mince pies, as well as Christmas dinner on offer.

Plumpton Racecourse chief executive Michael Moloney said: “2014 has marked a special year for the Injured Jockeys Fund - their 50th anniversary, and we are proud to be bringing it to a close with this outstanding charity during December.”

The Injured Jockeys Fund Raceday will give people the chance to purchase any gifts, calendars and cards for friends, family and colleagues, in support of one of racing’s most prominent charities.

The charity’s cards, gifts and calendars will also be on sale on December 15.

Christmas lunch will be on sale in the Paddock or Marquee restaurants at the festive event.

In addition to the planned festivities, a competitive seven race card, including feature races, can be enjoyed by racegoers on both dates.

In December 1 there will be a second race in Plumpton’s Cheltenham bonus race series for the 2014/2015 season, the Autumn Gala Novices’ Steeple Chase.

While the event on December 15 features the Winter Gala Novices’ Steeple Chase, the third race in this exciting bonus initiative – the first of which was held at the Pompadour Raceday on Monday November 17.

The racecourse’s chief executive Michael added: “Sponsored by horse racing broadcasters, SIS, this exhilarating Cheltenham bonus race series provides any winning horse from one of five nominated Novices Chases at Plumpton this season, the opportunity to scoop a valuable £60,000 cash bonus if it then goes on to win any chase race at the Cheltenham Festival in March 2015.

“The scheme was incredibly successful last year and helped us to attract genuine festival contenders, providing our race-goers with a great opportunity to see racing’s future stars in action. We’re delighted the scheme has continued into the 2014/15 season and are looking forward to the action unfolding.”
