A Vintage Performance on a Winning Day

Bordeaux-Undiscovered’s Race Day at Stratford Racecourse on 28th March was a great success. Check out the results below!

STR382-9377 Race 6 BTO Presentation 28-03-15We had several winners onboard who won tickets in our Prize Draw for the event. To enter into the Draw they had to answer the following question:

‘What is your favourite wine?’

We had some great answers and it turns out that Claret in all shapes and sizes is still a firm favourite:

  • The Grand Crus Classes were first past the post with a photo finish between the two Saint Emilions Chateaux La Fleur Morange and Pavie.

  • They were closely followed by the Petits Chateaux with newcomers performing well.

  • Malbec was a surprise front runner as an outsider and Sauvignon Blanc came in as a runner up. STR382-9235 Race 3 Presentation 28-03-15

  • There were a few stragglers and Alborino fell at the first hurdle.

Our Prize Winners were invited into the Collecting Ring to present prizes to the winning owner and jockey for one of our races and to judge the ‘Best Turned out’. We also had a lovely mention in trainer Kim Bailey’s Blog on 3rd April as we sent him some bottles of Claret having overheard that he had enviously watched owners and trainers leaving the racecourse clutching cases of wine – wine lovers who are racing fans can read all about it here:
