This weekend saw the start of the racing season at Thirsk Racecourse and the season will start at nearby York Racecourse next month.
I can’t imagine why those big horses enjoy running round in circles so much. You wouldn’t catch us dogs doing that, would you? I think running through the woods chasing rabbits is much more fun!
If you want to go and watch the horses I have made a note of the events below. If you want to come and see me chasing rabbits just come along to Flamborough Rigg cottage and ask for Katie.
