Join us for SJA’s VIP race day at York on May 17

Come along and meet up with other SJA members at York Races for a bargain day out at one of the Association’s most enjoyed social occasions of the year.

The Sports Journalists’ Association, thanks to our generous sponsors Ladbrokes, is holding its annual race day at York on Wednesday, May 17, the first day of one of the highlight meetings of the flat season.

The day’s feature race is the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes, an important Classic trial, which in 2015 was won by So Mi Dar, ridden by the evergreen Frankie Dettori and trained by John Gosden, the same pairing that won in 2015 with Star of Seville.

This will be the SJA’s fourth visit to York Races, providing an exclusive offer for our members with our tickets costing just £25 – less than the price of entry to the course. We are keen to encourage members from across the country to attend, and to bring a guest – members are allowed to buy two tickets at our top-value price.

At York, members and their guests will have a terrific day out in an exclusive box overlooking the finish line, together with lunch and half a bottle of wine. And if we’re lucky, there may also be a special guest or two to come along and mark your racecard for some of the best chances of the day. But we can’t guarantee any winners.

Places are strictly limited, so please make sure you book yours as soon as possible. Write, with a cheque made out to the SJA, please to Randall Northam at 9 St Aubyns Place, York, YO24 1EQ. Please state if you want a car park pass as well. Gates open at 11.15am and lunch starts at 12.30pm
