Day two of the Ladbrokes Winter Carnival at Newbury Racecourse took place on Saturday, December 1, with the feature £250,000 G3 Ladbrokes Trophy taking centre-stage.
The Ladbrokes Trophy saw Sizing Tennessee gain an impressive victory over Elegant Escape as trainer Colin Tizzard recorded a memorable first and second in Britain’s second-richest handicap chase.
Ladbrokes Trophy Day pulled in a crowd of just over 16,000 which was marginally down on 2017, while the two day Ladbrokes Winter Carnival saw over 23,000 racegoers in attendance.
Julian Thick, Chief Executive of Newbury Racecourse said: “It is encouraging to see solid crowds across the two days. Ladbrokes Trophy Day was slightly down on last year, which we expected given the weather forecast at the start of this week, but we hope our customers have been given a vastly improved experience across the site, with the majority of the redevelopment now complete. There has been a great atmosphere, fantastic racing and with Ladbrokes we will look forward to next year.
