The sun beamed down on more than 2,500 spectators at Plumpton Racecourse's Family Day.

Beyond the six thrilling races, attendees revelled in a dog show, picnics, and kids' activities.

The day kicked off with a familial win as trainer Ben Brookhouse and father Roger saw their 11/10F Gozo take the Savills Juvenile Hurdle, ridden expertly by Jack Quinlan. The three-year-old led from the start, winning by 3 ¾ lengths on his hurdles debut.

Joe Tizzard, the Dorset-based trainer, claimed the second race - the Andrew "Super Wack" Jackson Memorial Novices' Handicap Chase - with Tamaris.

Despite a hesitant start, Tamaris soon found his rhythm, taking the lead two fences from home, sealing victory by an impressive 9 ½ lengths.

The Half Moon Plumpton Handicap Hurdle saw Aviewofthestars, trained by Fergal O’Brien and ridden by Liam Harrison, return after 121 days to win by 4 lengths for owner Max Comley.

The day's feature, the Friends & Family Remembering Norman Sharpe Handicap Hurdle, was clinched by 2/1 favourite Our Champ.

Trained by Chris Gordon and ridden by Rex Dingle, the horse won by 6 lengths after Alien Storm's unfortunate fall at the last.

The Booked It Handicap Chase was another spectacle, with Ryan Potter-trained Post No Bills, owned by the Pyne Swinburne Partnership and ridden by Sean Bowen, winning by 5 ½ lengths.

The final race, the Strong Flavours Catering Open National Hunt Flat Race, saw jockey Freddie Gordon make a winning debut on Easy Peasy, trained by Nicky Henderson and owned by Mrs Christopher Hanbury.

Not to be outdone, Lara the Collie won Best in Show, adding a dash of canine charisma to the day.
