Christmas Party 2023

Thank you for the thank you’s

23rd December 2023

One of the most rewarding parts of being involved with Hambleton Racing is helping people take their enjoyment of our fantastic sport to the next level.

There are so many aspects that go into owning a racehorse but one of them is undoubtedly friendship and we're very fortunate to have made some special friends over the years and witnessed many new friendships blossom as we share racing's roller coaster together.

In recent months we've been busy at the stables holding events and have also held our annual Christmas owners' event at York, after which we've been overwhelmed and touched by the amount of owners who took the time to write to us to express their gratitude to say how much they had enjoyed the day.

We're very lucky to have such a fantastic group of owners and are looking forward to another great year on the racecourse in 2024. In the meantime a selection of the messages received from our owners about our Christmas get together appears below.


Thank you very much for a very enjoyable meal today. Thank you also for arranging my taxi.



Carol and I would both like to thank you all for a super lunch and afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the work that you had put in to make the arrangements was really appreciated. It was good to meet up with old friends during this relatively quiet period and sets us up for the festive period. It was of course topped off in winning the quiz, but we are indebted to Martin for that!



Thank you for all of the work you’ve put in, creating a fantastic experience, from the naming day to the Christmas party and everything in between, including two victories for Crack. It certainly wouldn’t be the same without the Hambleton team.



We both want to thank you all for a super lunch yesterday. We very much appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into these events to make them such an enjoyable experience. The venue was great from both a food and location perspective (even for us southerners!).

Just a note to say Thank You for a lovely day today. The food was delicious, the magician was amazing and being part of the winning quiz team was the icing on the cake.



Many thanks to all the team for the organising and planning of the Xmas lunch. It was a tremendous success and we all enjoyed it immensely.



Lyn and myself would like to say thank you for organising the event in your normal efficient manner. Very much appreciated.

Just a quick acknowledgement to all of you for yet another very well organised & enjoyable event to celebrate the start of Christmas. We both thank you, for the chance to see new and old friends alike.

Hello fantastic Hambleton team, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fabulous afternoon on Monday. Really enjoyed myself and it feels like I've started Xmas now. Loved the magician! Great food, too.



Hello Everyone, Just a note to thank you all and say how enjoyable the day was. It worked out well coming by train, it couldn't have been more convenient right next to the station! It was great to catch up with friends.



Just to thank Hambleton Racing for this year’s Christmas Lunch. Many thanks to all of you for making it such an enjoyable afternoon - it was good to meet some old friends again.
