New award for Hereford Racecourse

Hereford Racecourse was the winner of a prestigious racing award last season when its Westons Cider Owners & Trainers Bar won the “Best Racecourse Owners & Trainers Catering Facility” at the national racecourse catering awards.

The ceremony took place at Newbury Racecourse where representatives from the country’s 60 racecourses gathered. The judges acknowledged Hereford’s work in sourcing local produce, in particular Hereford Beef, for its popular Home Cooked Stew which was the signature dish for Owners & Trainers. The racecourse also struck up notable partnerships with Chase Distillery and Westons Cider.

Executive Director, Rebecca Davies, said: “It was a fantastic day and an award we are extremely proud to have won. Serving Hereford Beef was a real hit, and more importantly people understood why we were doing it! Working with Hereford business and produce is something we are passionate about and it’s great that on this occasion we won an award for it too.”
