Whether you like a flutter or just a great day out, one of Musselburgh Racecourse’s richest and acclaimed race now gets is very own headline raceday. The five star visitor attraction has added another high profile raceday to its famed fixtures list - highly anticipated £100,000 Edinburgh Gin Scottish Sprint Cup.
Taking place on Saturday 9 June 2018 and sponsored by Edinburgh Gin, there is a total prize fund of over £160,000 and the UK’s leading horses, trainers and jockeys are set to descend on the racecourse. It’s time to dig out those top hats and tails and dust off the fascinators because the raceday will also be broadcast live on ITV4 making it one of the hottest summer tickets and biggest social dates in the Scottish racing calendar. Horse racing devotee Judy Murray OBE will be there on the day to enjoy the racing action.
Aisling Johnston, marketing manager, Musselburgh Racecourse, commented: “The Scottish Sprint Cup is one of our most popular and richest flat races of the year so we’re thrilled to give it its very own headline raceday.
Edinburgh Gin will feature in all racecourse bars, restaurants and pop-up bars and the coastal track will introduce the new premium gin – Seaside Gin. Edinburgh Gin will take over the lawn selling a range of gins and gin fizzes, from classic G&Ts to innovative and themed cocktails created by the Edinburgh Gin team.
Foodies can get their locally sourced fix as award-winning gastronomy experts Heritage Portfolio provide the flavours for the day. There’s the fast selling Fish & Chips package inclusive of freshly cooked fish and chips along with wine or beer or the Gourmet Pie & Pint package– both include admission tickets and raceday programme. For those who like a little extra sparkle with their raceday Musselburgh Racecourse has launched the new Champagne Experience. Four people can experience the races in a private reserved table on the Pommery Lawn and enjoy a tasting of the four seasonal Pommery Champagnes plus glass of selected fizz.
And if that’s not enough, then there’s music from Funk Wagon, live entertainment and the acclaimed after party.
