The annual ceremony - held this year at Newbury racecourse - is a chance to reward those racecourses who are seen to have put most effort and resources into improving different aspects of the raceday experience for race-goers.

Both the West Sussex courses have a good record at the event in recent years - and both are celebrating again following the dishing out of the 2017 gongs.

Fontwell won the sought-after Racing Post Readers' Award while Goodwood took the title for digital and social media work in promoting their race meetings and other events.
