Beverley Racecourse take top prize at RCA Showcase Awards

Beverley Racecourse has been honoured at the annual RCA Showcase Awards by winning the prestigious Food and Beverage Award.

The RCA Showcase Awards, partnered by Moët Hennessy and Racing Post, celebrate excellence and innovation in racecourse customer experience and were held this year at Newbury Racecourse.

Beverley beat off all the competition and impressed the judges with their partnership with top-class restaurant Winteringham Fields which has resulted in an exceptional dining offering to customers and proved hugely popular throughout the 2017 season.

Maggie Carver, Racecourse Association Chairman, said: "I'm absolutely delighted for all the winners and especially for the team at Beverley for their hard work and dedication this year. The excellence and innovation of all our Finalists made the competition as fierce as ever, and the winners have shown exceptional commitment to delivering outstanding customer experiences and initiatives across the sport.

Well done to all the Winners and Finalists who can be very proud of their achievements. The variety and range of our racecourses are what makes the sport in Britain so unique and it was really pleasing to see so many represented and winning awards."

Sally Iggulden, Chief Executive of Beverley Racecourse, said: “I cannot emphasise strongly enough how proud we are to be recognized for our commitment to customer service and innovation by walking away with a Showcase Award and a very hotly contested Food and Drink accolade. To be nominated for 4 individual categories set a precedent among racecourses, and to stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Ascot and York proves that Beverley Racecourse is able to deliver an exceptional experience, amongst the best in the country.”
