Romantic racegoers may be tempted by a special deal on offer if they fancy popping the question at Kelso races on Valentines Day next week.

The first to propose to their loved one at the borders track’s card on 14 February will receive two free badges for a meeting of their choice* at each of the five Scottish Racecourses in 2013.

Anyone thinking of making this year’s Valentines Day one to remember should first get in touch with Louise Grey or Trish Spours on 01668 280800.

www.Scottish have helped organise the initiative in conjunction with Kelso, Ayr, Hamilton Park, Musselburgh and Perth.

Lorna Ferguson of Scottish Racing said: “All of the racecourses offer a romantic setting for a wedding so with love in the air at Kelso Racecourse, we are offering one lucky couple two tickets to each of the five racecourses if they propose during their Valentines Day meeting.”

*Exclusions to some race meetings apply. The first couple to get in contact with Kelso Racecourse by the 12th of February 2013 and propose on the grounds of Kelso Racecourse on the 14th of February 2013 will win the prize. The winning couple must be available on the 14th of February for photographs at Kelso Racecourse and to have their names mentioned in any press Scottish Racing sees fit.
