    Quite a good iniative at Newmarket today.

    Seniors got in free to the Grandstand or could pay just 2 pounds to get into Members. The paddock marquee (free for all ages) provided free tea and coffee to the OAPs (sponsored by Bill Gredley who does a lot for the old folk of Newmarket).

    It is a very quiet day’s racing there today but at least it got a few extra people through the gate to add to the atmosphere. My parents (and a couple of their friends) went racing for the first time in more than 10 years because they wanted to support the idea. Newmarket therefore got 4 x £2 plus racecard sales that they wouldn’t normally have got and I expect they may have a drink and a bet on the Tote at some point as well.
