Carlisle Racecourse hosts its penultimate flat race meeting today with its new general manager at the reins.
Geraldine McKay is keen to attract newcomers to racing by making the Carlisle track more welcoming to casual spectators, including families.
Grand National winning trainer Sue Smith is aiming for a triple victory at Carlisle Racecourse today.
She is hoping to capitalise on the shock success at Aintree, where Auroras Encore took victory in the world's most famous race.
Ryan Mania from Galashiels, who rode the 66-1 outsider, will miss out on the meeting, after sustaining injuries from a fall at Hexham on Sunday (7th April).
Mrs Smith has three horses running, with Alta Rock in the 2.20, Rebel Swing in the 4.25 and Highrate in the 4.55.
The going at Carlisle for racing this afternoon is good to soft, good in places.
The card for the day features seven jumps races and children's events, including a Mad Hatter's tea party and Easter egg hunt.
Admission is free for all accompanied under-18s.
The first race is at 1.50pm, with the last one at 5.20pm.
The racecourse say they were insured for cancellation but it has still missed out on substantial income from food and drink sales during the evening from its biggest attendance of the year, with a capacity crowd of 9,500 likely.
Almost two thirds of people who paid between £25 and £30 to watch the races and see a gig by 80's legends Madness on Saturday have already received their refunds.
The event was called off on Friday afternoon after an inspection of the course showed that it was unfit for racing. The venue's grassy car parks were also out of action because of flooding after a week of heavy rain following the wettest June for more than a century.
The crowd at Carlisle Racecourse is estimated at just over four thousand for today's Jubilee race meeting.
