A RIGHT ROYAL OCCASION!
 
ROYAL ASCOT PREVIEW

I always feel that Royal Ascot marks the definitive start of a British Summer.  Our RA preview will be on THURSDAY JUNE 15th at our usual venue. Given the amount of races we need to cover, post-time will be slightly earlier at 7.15pm. 
International Racing Bureau's Adrian Beaumont & Racing Post tipster, Paul Kealy are confirmed panellists. We continue our link with Betway by welcoming ALAN ALGER (PR/Media) to our Preview panel. Our very own Lee Mottershead will be in the chair.
I know John Jacobs has some great raffle prizes too. Huge thanks to Joe De Souza for donating a splendid limited edition of the 100th TBA Anniversary Book charting the history of Thoroughbred breeding.
 
CONGRATULATIONS...

to LRC member, Joe De Souza, on your new job with the TBA. This month's issue carries some great articles on Joe's work with the TBA. 
 
MAGAZINE MAKEOVER

Joe has edited the latest Club magazine. I hope you enjoy the articles on the TBA & the efforts it's making to attract young people to the sport. Also, well done Joe for an excellent Q/A with Ascot Director, Nick Smith!
Joe is keen for all members to feel that they can contribute to our Mag! So how about your ideas Folks!
 
WELCOME WEATHERBYS!!

You can't follow the history of Racing without being acutely aware of the enormous supporting role played by Weatherbys. From the studbook, through the administration of racing accounts to managing entries/decs and producing racecards, this family concern has played a crucial role in supporting the sport. Do, please, check out Weatherbys page on this website. I'm really proud that they are the LRC sponsors from
May - July. Welcome!
