ARENA LEISURE TO REWARD STABLE STAFF ON THEIR RICHEST RACE DAY
Ian Penrose, Group Managing Director for Arena Leisure is delighted to announce that the Arena Group will be donating a £500 bonus to each winning stable at Lingfield Park tomorrow. This meeting is the richest ever all weather race meeting staged in this country, with £210,000 in total prize money on the day which features the £60,000 Littlewoods Bet Direct Winter Derby and the £75,000 ladbrokes.com Spring Cup.
Ian Penrose commented: "We really appreciate all the hard work that goes into preparing horses for races and caring for them generally, especially in the depths of winter. This is one of the ways we will be rewarding the staff from stables which have supported our all weather season. Each stable with a winner on the eight race card, will receive a cash bonus of £500, the money will go to the stable staff, to be spent as they wish."
