ALL-WEATHER CHAMPIONSHIPS FINALS DAY

As the inaugural All-Weather Championships series comes to its conclusion on Finals Day, it will also create history as the first-ever raceway to be held on Good Friday.

“The objectives of the All-Weather Championships were to begin to rebrand the position of All-Weather racing in Britain,” said Jim Allen, ARC’s Racing Director. 

“We wanted to improve the profile, prestige and reputation of the sport and to improve the race programme where we could. We also wanted to improve field sizes and as a result hoped that betting turnover and Levy yield would increase.

“We hoped that everything would have a knock-on effect on integrity, that we would create international interest in the sport and that ultimately for the consumer create an easy-to-follow, exciting and joined-up championships for fans to follow throughout the winter.

“Good Friday will kick off the with the £50,000 coral.co.uk All-Weather Championships Apprentice Handicap, which will be the first race to take place on a British racecourse on Good Friday, and then we will have the six championship races.”
