Richest race programme ever planned with two fixtures worth £200k or more.
With the new season getting underway at Hamilton Park on Sunday 7 May, the Lanarkshire racecourse has announced that prize money is set to exceed £1.64M for the 2023 season as part of their commitment to Owners, Trainers and racing staff.
A key highlight will once again be the Lanark Silver Bell fixture on Friday 25 August which has received further investment, making it the richest raceday in Hamilton Park history worth £212,150, including the prestigious Lanark Silver Bell Heritage Handicap worth £100,000.
This year’s programme continues to see investment in prize money across all grades of race with a focus on adding further quality to the overall fixture list.
Racecourse Managing Director, Ashley Moon said; “We’re delighted to be unveiling our plans for the season ahead where we will be looking to build on the successes of last summer. In addition to the welcome return of the £200,000 Sky Bet Sunday Series fixture in May, we have added a number of high-value Class 2 races to the programme, each worth between £30,000 and £50,000, whilst all races will continue to be run for at least £2,000 above the new minimum values set by the BHA.
Following feedback from previous guests we have invested in an improved dining offer for Owners and Trainers alongside a fresh new look to the Owners and Trainers Bar which we hope elevates the raceday experience even further.
Myself, my Co-Director Fiona Murdoch and the team are fully committed to delivering the very best raceday experience possible for all of our valued visitors and we can’t wait to open the gates for what we’re sure will be a fantastic season.”
