Meeting - Monday 14th April 2014


Blue Skies and Warm Sunshine at Hexham Racecourse - Race Meeting Report here.

The pre race spotlight fell on the backroom staff in the racing industry. Representatives from Racing Welfare, the Jockey Club Charity which provides support for those in need who work, or have worked in the British Racing and Thoroughbred Breeding Industries were in the parade ring to judge the Racing Welfare Best Turned Out Competition which is being held at racecourses throughout the UK.

The Best Turned Out series, sponsored by EPDS Racing for the third year, aims to highlight the hard work and dedication shown by working staff in preparing their horses for a day at the races

She received a £50 first prize, plus an "EPDS Racing Welfare BTO" series gilet.

Points have been allocated to the groom's yard and a league table runs until the finale at Huntingdon in December.

The winning yard will receive a trophy and £1,000 to be shared between the yard's staff.
