Six races are on the card on ‘Student - Free Raceday’ at Exeter next Tuesday (March 22) with Finlake Holiday Park at Chudleigh in South Devon taking the name of the selling hurdle at 2.30pm.

The holiday park is a new sponsor at Exeter, and Will Tottle, who is head of sales said, “We are really looking forward to coming racing next Tuesday. We are only down the road, and it makes sense to link up with the racecourse. We are also the title sponsor of the racecourse’s children’s day on April 18 which is perfect for the holiday park as it’s during the Easter holidays.”

Robert Webb Travel will be celebrating  21 years of sponsorship with the Moretonhampstead-based company taking the name of the open hunter chase run over three miles,  won last year by Here’s Johnny. Robert Webb is a long time supporter of Exeter Racecourse and has been in the travel industry for over 40 years. He first started sponsoring at Exeter when Percy Browne was the chairman.

The Canada Travel Centre - a division of Robert Webb Travel specialising in holidays in Canada, is an independent company established in 1988, and it sponsors the Novices’ Hurdle. Course specialist Vamizi, second last week in the Devon National, won the race last year.

The handicap hurdle run over 2m1f; Elizabeth Finn Care a 2m3f novices’ chase over 2m3f and Shops At novices’ handicap hurdle race are also on the cards.

Students wishing to come racing must present a valid student card at the ticket office.
