Sheep Racing


World Famous Fun!

Watch this unique sporting sheep race, place your bets and cheer your favourite sheep down the home straight. Truly hysterical, complete with jockeys urging their mounts down the 250 yard course.

As seen on TV 

Racing stars include:

No 1 - Red Ram
No 2 - Sheargar
No 3 - Little Pullover
No 4 - Golden Fleece
No 5 - Alderknitty
No 6 - Woolly Jumper 

The six sheep have to negotiate "Shepherd's Brook", "Bo Peep's Bend" and the "EWE Turn" in their quest for glory. 

Honest Joe the bookmaker, takes your bets to win the prize.

You can bet using the BIG Sheep currency, the EWE-RO, (purchase from reception on arrival) or of course the £. 

*Daily Show at 3:50pm April - October only
