Jumping School at Ellerslie: Tuesday 1 June

Mark the date in your diary - we've got our annual jumping school taking place on Tuesday 1 June from 10am - and the coffee is on us.

This acts as a prelude to our raceday taking place on Queen’s Birthday Monday with horses running in the Maiden Steeplechase and the McGregor Grant Steeplechase taking part.

Horses will start at the top of the straight (steeplechase course), jump the four fences in the middle, then the fence by the Ascot Hospital, then they will move onto the trial track, jump the two fences there and then up the hill. The last fence will be the Kenny Browne Brush with horses running down the home straight. In total, the distance will be approximately 2600 metres.
