THE Press Family Raceday is on this Sunday at York racecourse.

There’s a host of family attractions with gates opening at 11.15 am and the day is billed as a comprehensive day out for both the novice and regular racegoer.

Continuing from last year is the offer of a single admission combining both the grandstand and paddock enclosure with the course enclosure for just £12 with under 18s free.

This allows racegoers bringing a picnic into the course enclosure to enjoy their lunch and  then to cross over the track to see the horses close up in the parade ring and sample the facilities on the stands side.

Currently the weather forecast is for a sunny day with highs of 18C.
