Warwick Racecourse all set for new season

Press Release 24th August 2016 Warwick

The new season gets under way at Warwick Racecourse next month. 

The season, which runs from September to May is set to feature 17 fixtures, and will kick off with the Racing UK Season Opener Raceday on Tuesday, September 20.

The meeting will feature six quality afternoon races, and will be closely followed by the Down Under Raceday the following week, on Thursday, September 29.

The Down Under Raceday is Australasia themed and will feature a number of Down Under inspired entertainment, including music, a quiz and even a didgeridoo workshop!

The theme is inspired by General Manager, Andre Klein, who spent 16 years working in the racing industry in New Zealand and Australia before taking over at Warwick Racecourse late last year.

Warwick Racecourse heads into the new season on the back of a highly successful 2015/16 campaign, which saw attendances and the number of runners increase.

The Jockey Club racecourse has invested in improvement works on and off the track over the summer, including the integration of the flat track with the National Hunt course. 

Andre is eagerly anticipating the start of the new season. He said: “We are really excited the new season is upon us.

“A lot of hard work has gone into making improvements on and off the track over the summer and I can only see us going from strength-to-strength this season.

“The inaugural Warwick May Racing Carnival was a fantastic way to finish the season strongly, and after following this up hosting some really well attended events off the track in the last few months, our efforts have all been geared to September 20 and the strong racing programme ahead of us.

“Over the course of the year we’ve attracted a lot of people back to Warwick Racecourse who haven’t been to a raceday here for some time, while also welcoming a significant number of new visitors.

“We are committed to continuing to build links between Warwick Racecourse, local organisations and the community this season and the team is eagerly looking forward to the Season Opener on September 20.”

Advance tickets for the two racedays start from £12.50 per person and are available from Gates open for both fixtures at 12.10pm, with the first races at 2.10pm.
