What happens on the day?
On arrival at the Saint Wendred’s racing yard and stables on Hamilton Road you’ll meet Ilka Gansera-Leveque as she goes about her morning routine before being treated to a hearty breakfast to ready you for the day ahead. You’ll meet some thoroughbred horses, watch them train and learn about Ilka’s processes of turning racehorses into winners.
