RCA Showcase & Awards 2018 – Owners’ Experience

We are delighted to announce that we have been named as a Finalist for the prestigious Showcase & Awards, hosted by the Racecourse Association (RCA).

The Showcase & Awards is the marquee event of British racecourses that annually celebrates first class customer experience in partnership with Moët Hennessy, Racing Breaks, Racing Post and Great British Racing.

We have been listed as a Finalist in the Owners’ Experience category. From the five Finalists the winner will be revealed at the Showcase & Awards ceremony on Thursday 8th November at Aintree Racecourse.

For this award, members of the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) were invited to nominate racecourses for examples of where they had met and exceeded expectations relating to the raceday experience of racehorse owners. The Showcase standards of excellence and innovation were paramount and also examples of racecourses showing the most improvement were asked for.

Jonjo Sanderson, Chief Executive said: “Everyone at Wetherby is delighted to have been nominated as a finalist in the Owners Experience category for the forthcoming RCA Showcase awards.  It is testament to the vision that the Directors of Wetherby had when approving a multi-million pound investment back in 2015 towards the redevelopment of our facilities and we are absolutely delighted that the ROA and their members have enjoyed the results of that investment.

Being really honest, this nomination was most unexpected, but it really is most appreciated and is recognition for the hard work the team put in each raceday and we’re looking forward to the awards evening.”

Caroline Davies, RCA Racecourse Services Director, said: “I am thrilled for Wetherby Racecourse for their success in being named a Finalist at the 2018 Showcase & Awards.

“It is one of the most exciting times of year to see the Showcase submissions go before the judges to demonstrate the care and attention given to enhancing the raceday experience

“I extend my congratulations to the team for their hard work in securing this achievement as one of our Finalists and wish them the best of luck ahead of the Awards ceremony at Aintree Racecourse on Thursday 8th November.”
