Devon Day is a great local tradition when we celebrate the loveliness of our county that oozes from every nook and cranny. Our celebrated Clydesdale race is a fund raiser for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and you can become an owner of one of these wonderful horses for the day with every single penny donated to the DAAT. Simply contact the office for details. You might wonder what the association between Clydesdales and Devon might be, but these gentle giants live at Brimpts in the heart of Dartmoor with Tim Ancrum and Aileen Ware of Adventure Clydesdales. Have a go at riding one of them and you’ll discover for yourself what makes Dartmoor such an inspiring destination. We are also pleased to announce that this year racegoers will be treated to entertainment from throughout the day.
Local food, drink and attractions will also be on show and our seven race card is sure to throw up a classy winner or two – this is the meeting after all where Harry Fry’s highly regarded American won his novice chase debut last year.
