Night of racing will be odds-on favourite

A GLITTERING night of racing is to be laid on at one of the world’s most famous racecourses to raise vital funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Sponsored by the EADT, the event will take place at the Rowley Mile Racecourse in Newmarket on May 12 and is being being organised by the hospice’s Special Events Committee.

There will be six races, all of which are to be sponsored by businesses and individuals.

Racegoers will enjoy the thrilling atmosphere of the course and an exclusive party in the Champions Gallery Restaurant, with its panoramic window overlooking the finishing post.

Guests will also enjoy a three-course meal plus coffee, and a Champagne reception sponsored by Piper Heidsieck.
