The Saturday in August is back but it's just a little bit different!

The biggest crowd of the season, and we want you to be there!

This is the second and final Saturday fixture of the year and it’s one you simply won’t want to miss out on. Come and enjoy the summer sunshine (if it still lasts...). Previously known as the Summer Carnival, the Stone of Destiny Raceday is set to further knit together the association with the surrounding land and history of the Racecourse. The Stone of Destiny, also known as the Stone of Scone, is piece of sandstone associated with the coronation ceremonies of medieval monarchs of Scotland.

This day is still our most popular raceday of the season for racing fans and draws in a crowd of over 6,000 each year. The Grandstand and Picnic Enclosures are both open this raceday. So whether, you want something relaxed bring a picnic and set up camp in the Picnic Enclosure. A small range of inflatables will also be available to enjoy throughout the day!
Or fancy getting in amongst the action? Join us in the Grandstand Enclosure where you will have access to the Parade Ring to see the runners and riders up close before each race. Don't forget to check out the live music in The Barn after racing. 



The place to be for the loyal racegoer – the grandstands are always filled with excited fans cheering their horses over the line.

Tickets available in this Enclosure are:

Grandstand Entry - our most popular ticket
