ROYAL RANDWICK NAMED BEST EVENTS CATERER
The glamour of Royal Randwick’s spectacular Grand Ballroom in full swing for one of Sydney media’s biggest nights of the year saw the Australian Turf Club venue claim a highly sought-after award.
Royal Randwick took out Best Events Caterer at the nationally-recognised NSW Restaurant and Catering Awards, held at Sydney’s The Star last night.
Sydney’s world-famous racecourse venue – which boasts multiple spaces across its $170 million Queen Elizabeth Grandstand overlooking the Sydney CBD skyline and spectacular Centennial Parklands – beat many of the city’s big name venues for this year’s award.
The black-tie NRMA Kennedy Awards attended by almost 600 of Sydney’s biggest media, business, sporting and entertainment personalities pushed Royal Randwick past the judges’ winning post.
Royal Randwick also hosts the world’s richest race on turf the $14 million TAB Everest in October, and catered for a sold-out, record crowd last April for the farewell run of the world’s best racehorse Winx.
These are among the hundreds of raceday and non-raceday functions that cater for events of all sizes.
Royal Randwick Racecourse General Manager Adam Smith said: “Our team, headed by Executive Chef George Mullen, is renowned for attention to detail and great service.
“All of the Royal Randwick staff are thrilled and honoured to have contributed to this award.
“From the fun and glamour of raceday to corporate and business functions, our team is able to cater for any type of event with the very best food, service and hospitality.”
