Thirsk Racecourse contends for national award
2:33pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
A FLAT racecourse which has held meetings since 1855 has been named as a finalist in the industry’s annual awards for the first time.
Thirsk Racecourse will compete in the owners' experience category of the Racecourse Association’s Showcase and Awards event, after creating an owners and trainers suite in its Pavilion Rooms earlier this year.
The suite includes a restaurant, bar and tote facilities as well as views of the parade ring and winner’s enclosure.
Managers of the racecourse said the suite had received positive feedback from owners and trainers.
Clerk and manager James Sanderson said: “It is fantastic that a small racecourse like Thirsk has been made a finalist for the RCA Awards.
“We are a small and dedicated team who are committed to making improvements to our racecourse facilities in order to provide the ultimate raceday experience for our racegoers.”
The winners of the awards will be announced on November 14.
