Blog – 22nd December

Welcome to another blog from the team at Pontefract Racecourse.

Every fortnight, someone from the team will share their thoughts for your entertainment (or otherwise!):

  • Managing Director, Norman Gundill with his trusty PA, Caroline who also looks after the hospitality,
  • Accounts Manager, Nicola,
  • Admin manager, Carol,
  • Marketing exec, Alexia, and,
  • Chief Operating Officer, Richard.

What a year its been, 15 fabulous racedays!

From music with Kim Wilde to Ladies Day to Racing for Everyone and who can forget our SkyBet Sunday meeting!

While it was gutting to loose our final fixture of the year we definitely had plenty of fun during the year which made up for it.

Lets find out what some of the highlights were this year for the team:

Nicola: Having arch lintels installed at the house, very exciting!

Carol: A first ever winning tip! Stay Away Fay won at Cheltenham at 18/1 (maybe we should start to make note of Carol’s tips!)

Mr Gundill: The SkyBet Sunday Series meeting on the 25th June

Richard: Winning the Raceday award for Racing for Everyone at the RCA Showcase

Caroline: Sitting next to Paul Hanagan at the Go Racing in Yorkshire Lunch

Alexia: Our trip to York Races!

All of us at Pontefract would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, all the best!

See you next year.

We will leave you with some festive clips to enjoy and a lovely picture of us enjoying a Christmas day out:
