PUNTERS will be hoping The Winner Takes It All at Fontwell tomorrow evening (Friday).

Seven races precede music from Abba Magic at one of the track’s most popular meetings of the year - which is their first evening fixture of 2013.

And even those who don’t pick up much Money, Money, Money from the bookies can save some cash instead by taking advantage of a new offer from Fontwell Park’s owners.

The track is part of the Arena Racing Company (ARC) - the largest racecourse operator in the UK with 15 racecourses spread across the UK, who host nearly 40 per cent of the fixture list.

An annual members’ benefits package has been created that ARC say is unrivalled in the racing industry. All annual members of Fontwell Park racecourse will now get free entry to any other ARC racecourse fixture.

If you live near Fontwell Park and take out a half-yearly annual membership for £120, this will become your ‘home’ racecourse and you will get full members’ benefits, including Premier Enclosure entrance to all fixtures from June to December, including access to the annual members’ viewing bar, free car parking and more than 30 reciprocal fixtures.

The ‘away’ racecourse is any other you visit in the group and you will be given free access to any enclosure.

There are plenty of offers and discounts being given across all the racecourses and four complimentary admission tickets valid at any racecourse.

Tracy Skinner, general manager at Fontwell Park, said: “This new initiative will reward the loyalty of our members and give them an opportunity to try out some of the other racecourses in the group for free.”

The package is offered in partnership with William Hill and media partner At The Races. Full details at

For tomorrow, there were a whopping 177 entries across the seven races ahead of today’s final declarations.

Racing begins at 5pm with the Shripney Gardens Caravan Park Maiden Hurdle and continues until 8pm with the FJ Willett And Son Memorial Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race.

Gates open at 3pm and Abba Magic are due on stage around 8.30pm. Get tips for the meeting on this website on Friday morning.
