The Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes over the flying five furlongs at Beverley Racecourse is East Yorkshire’s best-known race.
Open to Flat sprinters aged three and above, and held annually at the end of August, it is the biggest day of the year for horse racing in the area. Take a stroll down memory lane with us as we remember two famous racehorses that won the Beverley Bullet.
Beverley has its own racecourse used during the summer months for horse racing, but did you know there are four other Yorkshire tracks within a 50-mile radius?
Home to two Listed races on the Flat, the Hilary Needler Trophy for two-year-olds over the flying five furlongs in May and the Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes for three-year-olds and up in August, there is plenty more top-class racing in the White Rose county to enjoy just a short drive away.
The Premier League board announced in its emergency meeting on Thursday 19th March that professional football in England will be further postponed until at least April 30 as governing bodies committed to extending the current season indefinitely.
The league had initially been suspended until April 3, but the extension comes as the UK government steps up its response to the outbreak.
So, you’re off to the races for what could be the first time you’ve spent the day at the racetrack.
Whether it’s one of the large national meets or something smaller, knowing your stuff before you set off is going to make the whole experience much more enjoyable – and hopefully bring you better odds for success when it comes to backing those horses.
Back in the day Beverley was one of Britain’s biggest towns but nowadays, for those people who live away from the area, the town of Beverley might not even trigger a response in their brain but over the years we’ve produced some sporting talents who have defied the odds to mix it up in the elite.
A busy day at Beaver park – the first team game was pre-empted with an excellent win for Beverley Under 14’s in the semi-final of the Yorkshire cup against Otley. Good luck in the final, also at Beaver Park in a couple of week’s time.
The annual Old Boys reunion was already in full throw by the kick off time. It was great to see the crowd boosted by many old friends of bygone ages.
