Today, as we had no guests arriving we met up with friends to spend a day at Newton Abbot Racecourse. The racecourse is only 8 miles away from our guesthouse and is a real fun day out whether you are a betting novice like me or a gambling professional. Normal admission prices are from 12.00 but every meet that takes place on a Monday offers a two for one offer.

Unfortunately, although some of us had success on the gee gees, Steve and I only managed some seconds and thirds but the atmosphere was so addictive it was just fun to have a flutter!

The next fixture is on Tuesday 14th June and is an evening meet - see you there!
