Like many of you, former wheelie-bin cleaner Craig Brazier enjoyed the event without having to dig too deep into his pockets.

Despite his recently acquired £1.3m Scoop6 fortune, the 39-year-old Mansfield Woodhouse resident took advantage of Chad’s two-for-one ticket offer at Southwell Racecourse at the weekend - and took a busload of friends and family to enjoy the fun!

Other well-known faces at the day included kids’ favourite Mike the Knight and Spurs and Argentina football legend Ossie Ardiles.

Chad editor Phil Bramley said: “Once again, the family day was a brilliant event and it was wonderful to see so many families enjoying a great day out at such a fantastic venue.

“The weather was kind, the racing was brilliant and I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did!”
