Musselburgh Supports The Emergency And Armed Services

Posted: 29th September 2017

Musselburgh Racecourse stages its annual race day in support of the emergency and armed services on Sunday. (1 Oct).

The Support Your Services Raceday features seven races with more than £50,000 in prize money, including the £20,000 feature race, the EBF Stallions Scottish Premier Fillies’ Handicap over one mile.

Staff and officers from Police Scotland, Scottish Ambulance Service and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service will be joined by members of the Royal Regiment of Scotland who are putting on a range of interactive displays for kids and adults alike.

Gates open at noon but before the first race at 2pm the day gets off to a rousing start with a performance by a Massed Pipe Band as they parade along the racecourse.

A special pony race will be held before the seven-card fixture gets underway and throughout the day children can enjoy a number of free fairground rides, face painting and other family entertainment.

As with all race days at Musselburgh, children aged under 17 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. A £2 advance booking discount for adults expires at midnight Saturday (30 Sept) and concession prices increase to £22 on the day so it is advisable to book in advance.
