More news, no ads


At the end of another successful Flat season at Newbury, the racecourse will once again celebrate some of those who have lit up the summer with starring performances.

They will present their own end-of-season awards, The Newburys, in association with Conundrum HR Consulting.

The winning-most owner, trainer, jockey, and apprentice during Newbury’s 2021 Flat season will all be honoured throughout the afternoon’s racing on Saturday, October 23.

The Virgin Bet Flat Finale with Oktoberfest is Newbury’s final Flat fixture of the year.

A special prize will also be awarded to the yard which has won the most ‘Best Turned-Out’ awards over the course of the last seven months.

Managing director of Conundrum HR Consulting, Hugh Nickerson, commented, “We are delighted to be supporting Newbury Racecourse in the recognition of the people who have made this Flat season so successful in the challenging circumstances of recent months.”
