A sure winner!
On December 2nd, Newcourt Residential hosted its annual hospitality function at Sandown Racecourse, Esher.
The bright crisp December frost brought with it the cold but also glorious sunshine. The 40+ guests who had been invited to toast recent acquisitions by the Newcourt team included many industry professionals from all over the South East England.
Managing Director Karl Elkhadraoui started the day’s racing with a short welcome and introduction to Newcourt. This was soon followed by renowned tipster Colin Brown’s introduction into the world of racing and how most of the novice gamblers may choose to wage their bets. However, with all Colin’s advice the first race tips failed to impress with both the 1st and 2nd choice suggestions coming 4th and 5th respectively out of runners. Oh dear!
At 1.20pm the first of two races sponsored by Newcourt was run with a few lucky guests picking the winner.
Lunch was served and as always was delivered to the very high standard one can expect at the Sandown Venue. Guests chatted and enjoyed each other’s company with much talk of past performance in 2011 along with a renewed optimism for the future and 2012.
At 3.20pm the second of the Newcourt sponsored races the ‘Palace Gate Novice Hurdle ‘ was run with the Newcourt team picking the best dressed horse which additionally went on to win the race. Hooray!
Presentation of the winner’s cup by Newcourt’s MD to the winning trainer ended a fine day’s racing.
We would like to thank all our guests who attended the day and made it such a memorable occasion.
