ONE of the most popular racehorses in training will try to turn back the clock at Chester's annual family fun day.
Twelve-year-old Tedburrow's best days are behind him, but the cheers of thousands of people will be heard across the city if he could win the Cheshire Life Queensferry Stakes, the highest class race being run on The Roodee on Sunday.
It will be the horse's 11th appearance on the Roodee and he's won four times already. He has been racing for more than 10 years, but he faces some stiff opposition on Sunday, especially in the form of Continent who won France's top sprint, the Prix de L'Abbaye, less than two years ago.
The Sunday meeting attracts the biggest crowds of the year to Chester Races. An array of entertainment has been lined up on the centre of the course, including a rodeo bull, Velcro Olympics, junior go-karting, bungee run, bouncy castle, donkey rides and gladiator jousting.
While picnics are allowed on the open course, dogs must be left at home. Car park tickets are sold on the day on a first come, first served basis and the use of tents and gazebos will be charged at £5 per equivalent of car parking space.
Racing starts at 2.20pm and admission is £25-£35 in the County Stand; £15 in Tattersalls and Paddock; £7 Dee Stands; £6 open course.
