Racenews racecourse service
Since its inception in 1991, the Racenews Racecourse Service has evolved into a sophisticated operation which issues a stream of news and background information from many of Britain and Ireland’s premier meetings.
Few major British racedays take place without the Racenews Racecourse Service in place and meetings covered include the Investec Derby Festival, Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, Ladbrokes St Leger Festival, The Festival at Cheltenham, John Smith’s Grand National at Aintree and Punchestown Festival.
The service is operated by a team of experienced journalists, helping the media with their work and enabling racecourses to channel their output through one reliable source.
Racenews produces a plethora of background information and media guides, ranging from factfiles through to comprehensive publications which benefit from the input of a top designer.
Thanks to a vast library of books, newspapers, magazines and databases, Racenews can carry out comprehensive and authoritative research on anything to do with horseracing.
The media guides, indispensable for the media reporting on top races, are widely recognised as the best in the business.
Racenews offers a range of services to the racing industry, helping ensure maximum levels of publicity and exposure. These include organising press conferences and media events at varied venues, marketing, sponsorship management and consultancy plus content across all platforms including journalism.
Racenews, since 2001, has acted in a public relations role for the Cartier Racing Awards and increased the profile of the annual event worldwide.
The company has always been at the forefront of the digital revolution, constructing and managing the first website for a British racecourse, and continues to be cutting edge in the use of technology and dissemination of information.
