14 Year 9 students visited Lingfield Racecourse on Wednesday
22nd January for a Numeracy Day run by ‘Racing to School’. Students
were treated to a behind the scenes look at the preparations made by a
racecourse on a race day – applying their mathematical skills in the parade
ring and weighing room where they met Frankie Detori!
Students were taught how to read a racecard and watched the
first two races; the racecourse asked them to present the prize to the second
race winner too!
