I think this is going to be huge!Dougie Costello - Group 1 Winning Jockey
City Racing held a demonstration event at Aintree Racecourse in November 2018 to prove that the concept of City Racing could be a workable reality. The Andrews Bowen Safetrack was laid over a 36-hour period on the motocross track adjacent to the Aintree Racecourse.
Guests were invited to witness the first racing on a “popup” racecourse. The horses raced on the track without incident.
The jockey’s praised the stability of the track and commented that “The track rode brilliant! It’s only been there two days and it felt like it’s been there a long time, so it beds in very quick.”.
I think this is an unbelievable thing, it’s going to bring racing into the new stage of racing. We’ve been waiting for something like this for the past couple of years.Dougie Costello - Group 1 Winning Jockey
