Racing Welfare and the Racehorse Owners Association join forces to recognise regional racing

Racing Welfare and the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) have teamed up to provide two glittering black-tie awards events for the industry as part of their ongoing partnership.

The Northern Racing Awards and Epsom Owners’ and Trainers’ Awards seek to recognise the achievements of their respective regional communities.

These two hugely popular annual events see owners, trainers, jockeys and stable staff, as well as other professionals from the racing industry come together for an evening of celebration with dinner, a drinks reception and dancing.

Dawn Goodfellow, chief executive of Racing Welfare said: “We’re delighted to once again be hosting these awards, which enable us to shine a light on some of racing’s star performers and standout moments from the past year, while bringing together the local racing communities.

“It is thanks to the generosity of our sponsors that these events are possible, so we’d like to extend our grateful thanks to ROA for once again showing their support as headline sponsors.”

Charlie Liverton, CEO of the ROA added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Racing Welfare to support the Northern and Epsom Awards. The work that Racing Welfare undertake and the support they provide to those who care for and look after our horses, day in day out, is invaluable to the entire racing community. These awards provide us with the opportunity to help show our gratitude to all those people who support our great industry across the country”.

There will be 12 coveted awards celebrating flat and National Hunt racing, as well as a live and silent auction and live music from popular band, The Monotones.
