The Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) is delighted to announce that Racing Welfare will continue their support of UK Arabian racing through sponsorship of their overall Best Turned Out Awards for the season, as well as individual awards across five races.

For 2023, the groom of the horse judged to be the Best Turned Out at every ARO race will be awarded points, with the groom accumulating the most points receiving £150 at the end of the season. There will be a further £150 awarded to the yard with the most points overall.

In addition, Racing Welfare will sponsor awards of a £40 cash prize for the Best Turned Out horse at five races as follows:

3rd June Doncaster Racecourse

1st July Chester Racecourse (Group 2PA)

22nd July Newbury Racecourse

28th July Chepstow Racecourse (eve)

9th September Haydock Park Racecourse (Group 3PA)

Adam Ferguson, Head of Community Engagement said, “Racing Welfare is very pleased to continue to support the ARO’s Best Turned Out Series. It’s important to recognise the hard work and care that goes into preparing a horse for the races, especially during Racing Staff Week when representatives from our regional teams will be awarding the prize at Chester, at ARO’s first black type race of the year.

“We wish all participants a successful 2023 season.”

Genny Haynes, ARO CEO commented, “ARO is extremely grateful to Racing Welfare, who have been supporting this award series since 2017, for their recognition of all the hard-working staff behind the scenes and on course. We are also thrilled that the award at Chester will coincide with Racing Staff Week, showing our support to this important campaign.

“We look forward to welcoming their representatives to Doncaster on June 3rd.”
