Kim Bailey is one of seven leading Jumps trainers to sponsor races at the opening fixture of Worcester Racecourse’s season on Friday 23rd April. It will be the first time in 18 months racing has taken place at Worcester due to flooding and Covid-19.
The Kim Bailey Racing Syndicates Handicap Steeplechase is the opening race of the evening which also sees Champion Trainer Paul Nicholls, Fergal O’Brien, Dan Skelton, Dr Richard Newland, David Pipe Racing Club and Henry Daly lend their support to the resumption of racing at Worcester Racecourse.
Henry Daly says: “Whilst I don’t run many horses at Worcester I am delighted that Worcester is reopening after a challenging period for them. It’s always a concern when racecourses don’t race for a period of time and to have Worcester back for the first time in 18 months is really good news for Jump racing.”
Kim Bailey says: “Having missed Worcester for over a year we can’t wait to see racing return at this picturesque racecourse.”
ARC Ambassador Richard Johnson says: “I used to really enjoy racing at Worcester in the Summer and it’s great to see the racecourse about to start racing again. Trainers do like to run their horses there and it’s great to see them supporting the first fixture back.”
Rebecca Davies, Executive Director of Worcester Racecourse, says: “We’re very appreciative of the Trainers’ support of our first fixture and their enthusiasm in Worcester reopening.
“We are aware of the need to make some improvements at Worcester and once lockdown restrictions allow, I look forward to visiting Trainers to hear from them and also discuss our plans.
“It’s a really exciting period for the Racecourse and the Trainers support at this fixture in particular means an awful lot.”
