RCA Chairman Crosses Final Course From His List

Tuesday 16 April 2013

RCA Chairman Ian Barlow headed to Redcar yesterday to make good his desire to visit every racecourse in Britain during his tenure.

Barlow, who has been in his role at the RCA since 2009, visited Redcar Racecourse after two previous scheduled visits in 2012 fell victim to the weather.

 
He commented, ‘It is great to have finally crossed all fifty eight of Britain’s wonderful racecourses off my list. During my travels around the country, the thing that most strikes me is the incredible variety that British racecourses have to offer, which is unrivalled anywhere in the world’.
 
‘Similarly, the quality of the facilities and tracks on offer is excellent and I am always impressed at how racecourses strive to invest in these areas through careful management of their resources. Redcar is a good example of this with their investment in the past year of £260,000 in a new watering system and the new loos in the Petch Stand and Paddock Suite. My thanks to Mark Zetland and his directors for hosting me today’.
 
Amy Fair, General Manager of Redcar Racecourse commented, ‘It has been great to welcome Ian Barlow to Redcar on what has been a fantastic second of eighteen days racing here in 2013’.
