A GUEST panel will be on hand at Hexham Racecourse to preview the world famous Cheltenham Festival.
In an exciting first for Yarridge Heights, an event looking ahead of the four-day sporting event will take place on Wednesday, March 6.
Held at the racecourse’s Henderson Suite at 7pm, a panel consisting of jockeys Peter Buchanan and Danny Cook, local trainer Michael Smith and Racing UK’s Andy Richmond and Will Smith will share their racing expertise.
The preview evening will act as a perfect warm-up to the opening fixture at Hexham on Thursday, March 14, which will coincide with St Patrick’s Day at Cheltenham.
The Yarridge meeting will be Cheltenham themed, with special lunches planned.
