The Blue Square Winter Derby Day is set to bring a dramatic climax to the end of the winter all-weather season on Saturday 24 March.

Lingfield Park’s successful winter all-weather season draws to a close on Saturday 24 March with the Blue Square Winter Derby Day featuring over £200,000 of prize money up for the grabs!

There is an exciting programme of racing in the offing with two Listed races and the feature race The Blue Square Winter Derby (Group 3), worth a staggering £100,000!

It’s sure to attract some top horses with many using it as launch pad to a prosperous summer season.  At this stage, a multitude of top trainers look to be sending horses to this race including Aidan O’ Brien, Andrew Balding, Mark Johnston and William Haggis having entered the particularly exciting and unbeaten ‘Beaten Up’.  The action is due to start at 2pm.

Managing Director, Paul Shrimpton is delighted with the prospect of such an exciting climax: “It’s been a really good winter all-weather season for us and this is a terrific way for it to finish. The prospect of so many exciting horses coming to Lingfield Park, combined with the amazing prize money up for grabs always leads to some great action.  We have to extend our thanks to Blue Square for their kind support and sponsorship of this day which we hope the local racing community come along to support and enjoy it.”
