What's Happening At The Racecourse

We may be without racing fixtures at the moment as our new Tapeta track resurfacing takes places, however the racecourse is still in full operation. From auctions to exhibitions, business functions to weddings, the racecourse, and our onsite Holiday Inn, are being kept very busy through the racing-less period.

Just yesterday we hosted the Black Country Growth Hub launch, utilising our premier conferencing facilities, which saw many local manufacturers and businesses, along with Black Country Chamber of Commerce members, support local manufacturing in what looks set to be a fantastic initiative. June has been a busy month of events, and most notably, two weeks ago today we staged the Black Country Asian Business Awards. In the 13th year, it was another resoundingly successful event, check out their highlights and pictures via the BCABA website:

Not only is it all go at the racecourse, but the racecourse team are getting out and about with free raceday tickets and racecourse goodies. Over the summer, you can visit the Wolverhampton Racecourse stall at the Shrewsbury Flower Show, Wolverhampton City Show and Shugborough Good Food Show, where as well as picking up a few freebies, the racecourse team will have with them an equiciser, for all to test their jockeying skills on.

In this busy season of flat racing, keen eyes from the racecourse are on the feature meetings to watch the Wolverhampton form. Of note, Patience Alexander, who scored impressively on his debut here back in April has recorded some fantastic results at York and Ascot in Class 1 company since, and Euro Charline, twice an All-Weather Championship winner on her first two races, has since ran superbly in Group races at Newmarket and Ascot, it's only a matter of time before she puts her head in front having made the frame on a couple of occasions. We can't wait for our August fixtures to come around and potentially unearth a new star of the racing world!
