What's happening at Sedgefield


Wed, May 10, 2017

Sedgefield Racecourse will be hosting its annual Paxtons Season Finale Raceday on Tuesday 16th May.

The event which gets started at 12:50pm and includes seven races, is sponsored by JG Paxton & Sons Ltd, a family-owned agricultural machinery dealership which has served farmers since 1853.

The company supplies the racecourse with equipment needed to maintain the track and grounds and this is the tenth year that JG Paxtons has supported the last raceday of the season.

Peter Tallentire, Managing Director at JG Paxton &Sons Ltd, said “At Paxtons we have always tried to know and understand our customers as we believe that this leads to greater levels of mutually beneficial business. Sponsoring at Sedgefield Racecourse has provided us with the ideal medium to facilitate this strategy. We have been able to bring together a wide range of our customers to the same place at the same time and provide first class food and drink which when mixed with the genuine excitement of horse racing creates a very relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere. Such a result can only be very good for future business.”

Jill Williamson, Executive Director at Sedgefield Racecourse, added: “JG Paxton & Sons Ltd regularly support the racecourse - they even have their own stand and their agricultural support is vital over the spring season.”

“Although this is the last race before the summer season, there are plenty of events taking place to keep everybody entertained. The team are gearing up for the annual Family Country Fair in July, also supported by Paxtons, which is set to be a great occasion for all of the family to enjoy.”

Grandstand and Paddock admission tickets can be purchased for Tuesday 16th May for £14 when booked in advance. For further package information or to book tickets call 01740 621925 or visit
