This seasons renovations were concentrated on the concrete apron and the Claro bar.
The front of the stands are due a timely update and work was undertaken to remove the concrete from the old silver ring enclosure and return this to turf, this giving the front of the stands a more aesthetic feel and safer underfoot.
The rest of the Apron will be completed in the winter of 2015, with fresh surface and redesigned layout in the bookmaking areas.
The Claro bar has been completely refurbished with the addition of two new hospitality boxes and private patios.
The previous building was the Tote control area, with the race company taking on it’s own Ripon Bet this left us with a large unused area within the building. With the need for more hospitality areas the decision to use this area rather than use marquees for small groups was undertaken.
Some of the features in the new bar are the old Tote windows which add a touch of history to the building while tipping a nod to it’s former life, the boxes have removable walls that give us the option of several room sizes from a box for 20 up to the whole bar for 120.
These rooms are now available for all so please contact the office on 01765 530530 for more information on what’s available to suit your budget,
And I hope to see you all soon for another years top class Yorkshire racing.
