Lingfield Park to offer money back if Bullet Train wins The Derby!

As Derby Day draws to an end on Saturday, June 5, the party will continue at Lingfield Park’s evening meeting and, to celebrate, the Lingfield Park team will be firmly supporting Bullet Train who won the recent Derby Trial at the Surrey course.

To help everyone join in the fun, the team at Lingfield have made a bold claim: “If you buy your tickets for this meeting in advance and Bullet Train wins the Investec Derby at Epsom, then we will refund the cost of your ticket!”

Henry Cecil trainer of Bullet Train was thrilled to hear of Lingfield’s initiative and said: “I have always been a great supporter of Lingfield’s Derby and Oaks Trials.

“Hopefully, Bullet Train will run a really good race at Epsom and thus endorse my opinion of Lingfield being a great stepping stone for the Derby.”

This fantastic offer will be available to the first 1,000 customers who pre-book by either visiting our website at or by calling 01342 834 800.

Tickets are just £15 per adult in advance and accompanied under 18s are admitted free of charge. Groups of 10 or more can benefit from a special group rate. Full terms and conditions of the offer will be published in the racecard on the day.

Gates at Lingfield will open early at 3pm in order for customers to arrive and watch The Derby live on the screens around the course. The first race is at 5.50pm and the last race goes off at 8.20pm

Managing Director Paul Shrimpton is excited by the prospect.

He said: “What a great opportunity to get behind our own Derby trial winner.

“We are all hoping Bullet Train can prove he was a worthy winner and go on to a great career at the highest level.

“Everyone here at Lingfield Park will be supporting him and we want our racegoers to get involved. This is a unique offer that presents our customers with an opportunity for lots of fun and the chance to enjoy a great night out!”
