Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse is thrilled to have been named as a Finalist in two categories at this year’s RCA Showcase Awards.
North Wales’ only racecourse has been shortlisted for the Food & Beverage Award and the RCA/ROA Owners’ Racecourse of the Year accolade.
The Racecourse Association’s (RCA) marquee event, which will be held at Aintree Racecourse on Thursday 23 November, celebrates excellence and innovation amongst British Racecourses – in partnership with Great British Racing, the Racing Post, the Racing Foundation and Racing Together.
The Food & Beverage award identifies excellence and innovation in racecourse food and drink quality and service, with Bangor-on-Dee’s introduction of a new Food Court being shortlisted in that category by a panel of judges.
The winner of the RCA/ROA Owners’ Racecourse of the Year award, meanwhile, is decided upon by racehorse owners, who are asked to nominate and score racecourses based on ownership experience with and without a runner, plus the raceday experience.
Paul Swain, Head of Raceday Experience & Communications at the RCA, commented:
“Congratulations to our 2023 Showcase Finalists. This list represents the best of British racecourses over the past 12 months and demonstrates their commitment to providing a fantastic experience for participants and racegoers alike.
“Our independent judging panel commented on the high standard of entries this year which was evident when considering the scores awarded.
“My thanks to all racecourses in supporting the Showcase Awards, our independent judging panel for their time and expertise and to our partners who help elevate this event. Alongside hosts Aintree Racecourse, the RCA is eagerly anticipating the Showcase Seminar & Awards on Thursday 23rd November where we will crown this year’s winners and overall Champion Racecourse.”
