‘Back a Winner by Train' provides even better value for racegoers in 2009

23 Mar 2009

Racegoers can start the British Flat season on a winning streak by travelling by train and saving money on course admission and the cost of a bet with totepool.

Anyone travelling by train to ten selected racecourses throughout the North and Scotland are on to a sure-fire winner with the 'Back a Winner by Train' promotion for 2009.

The popular scheme enables customers to obtain discounted admission into the Grandstand/Paddock/County Enclosures at participating racecourses - and for 2009 the discount has been increased to £4 at all racecourses apart from York which remains at £3, but includes (for the first time) the prestigious four-day Ebor Festival in August.

The scheme runs from the opening day of the 2009 British Flat season on turf at Doncaster on Saturday 28 Sunday 29 March and concludes on 29 December.

Now in its 23rd year, the promotion continues to be backed by train operator, First TransPennine Express and offers racegoers discount into the Grandstand/Paddock enclosures at Beverley, Carlisle, Cartmel, Doncaster, Hamilton Park, Musselburgh Newcastle, Redcar, Thirsk and York.

To complement the savings on admission, racegoers have the opportunity of obtaining £2 off a toteplacepot bet of £5 or more. This forms part of the voucher they receive when buying tickets at selected stations throughout the North and Scotland when they go racing by train.

David Crocker, marketing manager, First TransPennine Express, said: "We are delighted to support this increasingly popular promotion in its twenty-third year, which now offers even better value for money. We believe racegoers appreciate the advantages of taking the train and having a great time without worrying about driving."
