Catterick's richest day of the year.
THE totepool Catterick Dash takes pride of place on a seven-race programme at the North Yorkshire track on Saturday when racing is scheduled to begin at 1.55pm. With almost PS60,000 in prize money on offer, totepool Day is Catterick's richest raceday of the year.
In fact, there's prize money of PS25,000 up for grabs in the totepool Catterick Dash, a handicap contest over the minimum distance of five furlongs which should attract plenty of good sprinters.
Last year's race was won by Even Stevens, owned and bred by Paul and Yvette Dixon and trained near Retford by their son, Scott.
The day also sees the penultimate round of the Go Racing in Yorkshir' Future Stars Apprentice Series - now in its second year - which culminates at Doncaster next month.
North Yorkshire-based Megan Carberry has a clear advantage with 47 points, followed by Joe Doyle, Claire Murray and Alistair Rawlinson, all on 24 points.
As usual, the giant screen and the CCTV system will enable racegoers to see more of the racing along with action from QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot.
