FAKENHAM Racecourse is in the running for a new national award
Betview magazine has announce Fakenham Racecourse and Leisure Facilities as a finalist in the Racecourse of the Year catagory in the first ever Betview Awards.
Betview will be bringing the betting and gaming industry together at the inaugural event on March 3 at the Dorchester Hotel in London. The awards will be the first event of its kind to reward and recognise the UK and ROI betting and gaming industry for outstanding achievement, ingenuity, innovation, sheer hard work and ultimately success.
The award for which Fakenham is nominated will be presented to the racecourse which provides the best experience for the betting and racing public.
The Betview Awards will have Clare Balding as their host. She presents all of the BBC's horse racing coverage and is also the main presenter for rugby league, show jumping and three-day eventing.
As a former champion amateur jockey, she comes from a racing background. Her father, Ian, trained the great Mill Reef to win the Derby, Eclipse, King George and Arc de Triomphe. On his retirement in 2002, her brother Andrew took over the training license. A Classic winner in Andrew's very first season prompted a memorable interview with his tearful sister in the winner's enclosure at Epsom after Casual Look won the Oaks.
