The day comprises five races, between 2.15pm and 4.35pm, with horses from Guernsey, Jersey and the UK taking part.  The official announcer and commentator will be Mark Johnson, a regular visitor to Guernsey and who recently commentated for Racing UK at this year’s Cheltenham Festival.

“Guernsey has enjoyed a long history of horse racing on the island and the Guernsey Race Club is proud that it has been organising this event since 1976” said vice president Thady Griffith. “Each year we and the organising committee are always taken aback by how popular the Guernsey Race Club Day is with islanders and visitors alike enjoy the thrill and competitive spirit of what is often called the Sport of Kings and Queens.”
