On Wednesday large crowds enjoyed seven races, including cheering on Hayley Turner as the jockey stormed to victory in the Silk Series Handicap on Hart Stopper.

The Silk Series is a new initiative that sees female jockeys, both professional and amateur, compete in races hosted by nine ladies events across Arena Racing Company racecourses in 2017, with Yarmouth being the third venue to host the series.

Racegoers at the ladies evening also enjoyed a DJ set from Radio 2 and BBC TV’s Sara Cox, who is a keen amateur jockey.

Wednesday’s event also supported Cancer Research UK with 75p from every ticket going to the charity.

Glenn Tubby, Great Yarmouth Racecourse’s executive director, said he was delighted to be hosting a race in the Silk Series, as it was a fantastic addition to the ladies evening and helped to raise money for such a brilliant charity as Cancer Research UK.
