Nottingham 2023 Season Wrap Up

Article 8th November 2023 Nottingham

Racing Highlights

Sadly we once again had to call time early on in our season as for the second year running the final day was lost to a waterlogged track- indeed the season is one we’ll remember for some great horses- and some desperate luck with the rain!

There’s no doubt about the one moment in the season that really had a ‘wow’ factor, and that was on 21st July when Vandeek, trained by Simon and Ed Crisford made a spectacular winning debut.

He went on to emerge as one of the best juveniles in Europe in 2023 following up by winning the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Goodwood and then a spectacular Group 1 double in the Prix Morny in France and the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

We’re proud of the record Nottingham Racecourse has for hosting two year olds that go on to great things in their classic year and there’s every chance of more of the same in 2024. The Ralph Beckett pair, Valvano and Treasure(in the Royal Colours) who won on their debuts on what turned out to be our final meeting of the season are already in many a notebook!
Congratulations to Rob Hornby who saw off Rossa Ryan by a single point to land the Fairfax Top Jockey competition for the second season running, while Ralph Beckett, who has had a memorable season all over Britain and beyond, ran away with our top trainer competition.

We all have our own personal highlights, which for many involved a trip to the payout queue and wins to buy a new form book! With outsiders One for Bobby (1-2) and Rajinsky(16-1) landing our two marquee Listed Races it's been tough for punters- but also very exciting.
