MY DAY AT THE RACES With Robert Moss at Epsom on June 1

Robert Moss has been an owner for ten years. He has 14 horses in training on the Flat with Simon Dow, seven horses in sole ownership and seven in partnerships with Damien Brennan and Harry Redknapp. As a partnership the owners enjoyed notable success with the Simon Dow-trained Mr Scaramanga in Doha’s Group 2 Al Biddah Mile at Al Rayyan racecourse in February 2017. The partnership enjoyed a memorable Investec Derby festival at Epsom Downs with four runners over the two days. Did you receive any welcome information as an owner in advance of the raceday? Yes, by letter and email. How was the experience of arrival at the racecourse, and collecting your owners’ badges? All done with ease. What were your thoughts on the location, comfort and provision in the owners’ and trainers’ facility? The point of entry was perfect, so easy to enter. There were always

tables and chairs available. The bar service was magnificent and the food was of excellent quality and it just kept coming! Congratulations to the organisers on the day.

What was your overall lasting feeling of the day, based on your racecourse experience? A perfect two days’ racing.

How was the pre-parade ring/ paddock experience? Perfectly organised.

HOW IT RATED

How did you find the facilities for owners’ viewing? The views are great and all areas were accessible.
