Wall of Fame

The Wall of Fame has arrived!

You may have noticed that the covers to all our Racecourse Literature, along with the website and our social media sites, all feature a montage of faces. These faces are some of the lovely racegoers who were captured by our Social Media photographer during the 2016 season. You beautiful lot make up our incredible Wall Of Fame.

Not only does the Wall Of Fame have its own dedicated page, but the gorgeous mosaic will be brought to life at the Racecourse with a 20’ x 8’ piece of art in the recently refurbished Paddock Lounge Bar. 

And what’s more, if you can find your face on the Wall of Fame, you could win some pretty amazing prizes!

How do you win?

  • Find yourself on the Wall of Fame
  • Make a note of the reference number on the Wall of Fame grid that you appear in
  • Visit the Raceday Office during a 2017 race meeting and claim your prize! 

There’s the opportunity to win a free hospitality box, free meals and some fantastic VIP prizes as well as free racedays, free bets and free drinks!

For a full list of prizes, click here!

Your face really could be your passport to a prize!

Can’t see yourself on the Wall of Fame?
Don’t worry, our photographer will be out every day in 2017 getting new photos and the Wall of Fame will be refreshed with new faces during the year!
