Highlights from 2017
As 2017 comes to a close and we start looking forward to a New Year, here’s some of the fixture highlight from the past 12 months
The Welsh Champion Hurdle
In October, we battled against the elements of Storm Brian to put on the most prolific fixture in the Ffos Las calendar. Over 3,000 visitors were in attendance to see THE NEW ONE be crowned the 2017 winner of the Ladbrokes Welsh Champion Hurdle race, fending off the likes Clyne and Sire De Grugy.
NSPCC Wales Charity Raceday
An exciting day for all our horse racing fans, as we were joined by Sir A.P McCoy for a Q&A session between races. Fans were thrilled to get first-hand insights into the racing experiences A.P McCoy has enjoyed. We donated £2 from every ticket sale to NSPCC Wales | Cymru raising over £40,.000 on the day!
Tenovus Corporate Raceday
A fantastic afternoon was had by all who joined us for our Corporate Raceday in November. Connie Fisher was our hospitality host in Bridles Restaurant and did an amazing task of running the auction lots, helping raise over £12,000 for the Tenovus Cancer Care, Closer to Home Appeal.
Family Fun Raceday
This raceday was a huge success with all of our mini racing fans. It was a glorious day in height of summer and our visitors were invited to bring a picnic to enjoy ‘al fresco’ dining on the lawns. There was plenty of fun activities on offer for all the family plus some great flat racing action.
