Hamilton Park celebrates the end of season with two industry award nominations

Hamilton Park Racecourse has been named as finalists in two categories at the industry led 2022 Showcase Awards.

The premier Lanarkshire venue have scooped nominations in the racing connection category, and the Racing Post readers’ award.

And as former showcase champions, Hamilton Park is delighted to have suitably impressed the judges to gain the nominations.

The racing connection award celebrates initiatives that enrich and extend the reach of the sport to specific customers groups.

Hamilton Park was able to demonstrate this through its commitment to owners & trainers initiative, which included record prize money of £1.6M, an additional fixture as part of the Sky Bet Sunday Series worth £200k, the upgrade of the Lanark Silver Bell to a £100k Heritage Handicap, as well as an enhanced race day experience for visiting owners and trainers.

The Racing Post readers’ award is a unique award amongst the showcase collection and is the only award decided by racegoers, with each individual invited to nominate their favourite racecourse and rank out of 100 on customer service, value for money and overall race day experience.

Ashley Moon, racecourse managing director at Hamilton Park, said: “We are incredibly proud to have been nominated in not one but two categories at the annual Showcase & Awards. It’s a real testament to the hard-work, creativity and experience which went into the planning and execution of the 2022 season.

Hamilton Park has enjoyed much success

"It has been a fantastic team effort over the last year and we have enjoyed some wonderful highlights, and to be recognised for all that has been achieved makes all the hard work worthwhile.”

Paul Swain, communications and raceday experience manager at the RCA, added, “I am thrilled for Hamilton Park for their success in being named as finalists at the 2022 Showcase & Awards. We now turn to Pontefract in November to find out winners and the new additions to the Showcase hall of fame.”

Hamilton Park is one of five finalists in each award category, and the team will be hoping to be crowned winners at the Showcase & Awards ceremony hosted by Pontefract Racecourse on November 10.
