Race to Ascot for last events of season
ASCOT Racecourse will play host to two community racedays this month.
On April 18, the City of Belmont Community Raceday will see plenty of action on and off the track, with children’s amusement rides, face painting and an animal farm. On April 25, Perth Racing will commemorate the centenary of the Gallipoli landings.
A memorial service will be held on the front lawn of the Grandstand after midday. As part of the service, there will be a Catafalque Party, wreath laying service, minute’s silence and a recital of the ode with a rendition of Last Post.
It will be the last day of the Ascot 2014/2015 racing season.
Gates will open at 9am, with free entry for all Defence personnel in uniform or upon presentation of Defence ID.
