Poppy Race Day

Unfortunately, the Poppy Race Day 2020 has been cancelled.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it isn’t possible to stage the event as planned. Whilst we understand how disappointing this news is, our top priority has always been the health and well-being of our supporters and staff. 

We’re pleased to announce that we will be returning in 2021. Please check back for further updates on Poppy Race Day 2021.

Come racing with The Royal British Legion in style and comfort with a fun and relaxed day out at the stunning July Course at Newmarket. 

It promises a great day of racing with lots of additional family entertainment including a moving Standard Bearers’ Parade down the course, the Army Air Corps Helicopter, and an assault course challenge.

Gala Lunch

Enjoy being at the heart of the action and indulge in some unrivaled hospitality. The day starts at noon with welcome drinks on the veranda of our private marquee near the finishing post. After a three-course lunch, the real business begins, and you can watch your winners race past from our superb vantage point. Tea and scones are served at four o’clock.  

Course Entry Only

Members of The Royal British Legion can get a discounted entry in advance direct from the Jockey Club.

* Funds raised by this event help us to provide ongoing support to the Armed Forces community - serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.
