Wernick Events have signed a three year supply deal with The Jockey Club to provide temporary cabins, toilets and stores along with a host of ancillary products and services to Jockey Club Racecourses all around the UK.

The Jockey Club owns 15 leading racecourses, including Aintree, Cheltenham and Epsom making it the largest commercial group in British horseracing. Wernick Events have worked with the Aintree venue in particular for some time, striking up a successful partnership.

Carl Pastor, Operations Manager at Aintree Racecourse commented: “Since engaging with Wernick over the past 4 years it has been a pleasure to contract Wernick in to provide facilities for the Randox Health Grand National Festival and we are more than happy that the arrangement will continue. We have a reliable point of contact in the business and we can rely on them to provide the quality that is required for a prestigious venue.”

Key Supplier of Temporary Event Storage & Accommodation

Wernick Events recently supplied a number of units for the Investec Derby at Epsom Downs for the comfort of jockeys, press, commentators, visitors and staff. Wernick Events supply durable, re-usable cabins which can be in place and ready to use within a matter of days. The units come in a number of configurations; offering a versatile and cost-effective solution to any temporary accommodation and storage needs. As a key supplier, Wernick is set to supply hundreds of ticket cabins, storage units and toilets for The Jockey Club’s larger events.

Wernick Group CEO Simon Doran looks forward to this ongoing relationship with The Jockey Club saying “We are delighted to have secured a three year supply deal with The Jockey Club, which is the result of the excellent relationships that we have with the venues. Agreements such as this give us the confidence to continue in our fleet investment programme to ensure that the product we supply is fit for today’s demanding race venues”.

Charity Contribution

The Jockey Club puts the welfare of those in the horse racing industry at the heart of what they do, even setting up Racing Welfare, a charity supporting racing’s community.  Simon met with Dawn Woodfellow the CEO of Racing Welfare at Epsom Downs Racecourse at the beginning of June (pictured). Simon presented Dawn with a £3,000 donation to the charity, saying “I was particularly impressed by the support that Racing Welfare provides to its own racing family, and am delighted that our donation will be put to good use in this regard”.
