What is Three Friday Nights?
The ‘Three Friday Nights’ series of June evening race meetings was launched in 2011 and proved an instant success. Three Friday Nights presents a dynamic combination of racing, music and dancing to create a truly unforgettable experience.
First, you will enjoy a six-race card that offers a feast of excellent horseracing action, with the first race starting around 6pm on each evening. Then, after dark, the hallowed turf of the Parade Ring switches from hooves to heels as racing makes way for three world-famous DJs - each appearing for one special performance at the world’s most beautiful racecourse.
Get together with your friends and come along for a fantastic, fun-filled night out!
