Fixture Details | Dante Festival

 

High quality action sets the scene for big days to follow. 

At the time of writing, the Covid-19 pandemic means that this Festival will be staged “behind closed doors” so not open for public bookings. 

The scent of newly mown grass and freshly planted flowers add to the hope of new beginnings means there will be a definite buzz in the air, amongst the trainers, jockeys and stable staff who help stage the day.

The season lies ahead and many star horses have risen to prominence on the Knavesmire over these three fantastic days. The Tattersalls Musidora and the Al Basti Dante victors will be amongst favourites for the Classics; whilst the Matchbook Yorkshire Cup, won twice by the mighty Stradivarius, has proven form ahead of the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot.

Please revisit the “latest news” section of this website for the latest information, on these and future dates.
