The York Racecourse Ambassador, Remy, has been recognised for his work in the local community with a prestigious award.
The Sir Peter O’Sullevan Charitable trust Retraining of Racehorses Community Impact Award, as voted for by the public, was presented to Kevin and Pam Atkinson of New Beginnings at a ceremony in Newmarket.
A Group One winner for Robert Cowell in his racing days, the retired star was back in the headlines after another busy year of visits in the York area.
The positive impact of a thoroughbred meeting people was witnessed on emotional visits to both St Leonard’s and St Gemma’s Hospices; whilst it was a sheer joy to see the children of Clifton Green Primary School get to know the former sprint champion.
As Equine Ambassador to the Knavesmire, Remy will again be attending many York racedays in 2024, when racegoers will get their chance to say hello to him and chat to Kevin and Pam about the work of the charity.
