“Last night I booked a table in the Winning Post Restaurant for an evening’s racing. I am writing to say that the meal was probably the BEST I have ever had in a racecourse restaurant. In over 30 years of owning racehorses I have eaten at many racecourses, and in my career I have had the pleasure of eating in some of the world’s best restaurants, so I don’t make this comment lightly.”
