On a Bank Holiday weekend where RSA member syndicates are again making headlines we’re delighted to shine the spotlight on some of the racecourses and racecourse staff that have gone above and beyond to ensure syndicates and racing clubs have been welcome:
Members of the Racehorse Syndicates Association (RSA) have voted to award six courses with an award for excellence when dealing with syndicates and racing clubs with plaques to be sent to those courses this May.
Further awards were given to individual racecourse staff who, it was judged, had gone above and beyond in looking after syndicates and clubs on race day.
