New 'A Day In The Life Of' Feature Gives The Inside Track On Horseracing
Lovetheraces.com, the dedicated horseracing website launched as part of the Racing for Change initiative by Racing Enterprises Limited, has kicked off a brand new feature showcasing 'A Day in the Life' of various individuals within the sport.
The first two instalments of the feature are online now. The first reveals a day in the life of Ascot's clerk of the course Chris Stickels, who discusses what his routine was on King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day in July. The second feature in the series follows female apprentice jockey Leonna Mayor on a typical mid-summer Sunday.
"We wanted to showcase exactly what's it like to be part of a day at the races," said a spokesperson for the Lovetheraces.com team. "We're passionate about horseracing and we want to share that enthusiasm with people who are showing an interest in the sport for the first time or who have been to the races once or twice and might like to go more regularly. These features will provide them with glimpse into the different people who contribute towards these great days out."
The website aims to appeal to new and infrequent racegoers by delivering a whole host of engaging and interactive content, including competitions, guest blogs, racing tips, photo galleries, games, racecourse offers and more. Plus, the website also brings visitors details of all upcoming fixtures, including those that are perfect for family days out.
"Since Lovetheraces.com was launched, we have been committed to giving people the inside track on horseracing. Those who've never experienced a day at the races may feel nervous about doing so because they're unsure what to expect. By revealing different aspects of this amazing sport, we can show them what they're missing out on," the spokesperson added. "It won't be long before they're firm fans of the 'sport of kings', just like we are!"
A number of special guest contributors have been lined up to appear in the 'A day in the life of' feature over the coming weeks.
