THE first prize of the Betting Shop Manager of the Year 2012 will receive a trip-of-a-lifetime to the 2013 Singapore Airlines International Cup meeting – independent managers can enter the contest now.
The trip includes four night's hotel accommodation for two in Singapore and corporate hospitality at the races.
The Racing Post/SIS-sponsored competition is open to entries from independent managers in Britain and Ireland.
Download the entry form, answer the questions and return it by Thursday, May 31.
Two independent managers will be selected from each of eight regions and they will join managers from the major companies who have been nominated by their bosses.
The 84 managers through to this stage will be whittled down to 48 via another question-and-answer paper. Those remaining will then be subjected to a mystery shopper visit before a final 24 are invited to Doncaster to spend a day at the races with the judges. The eight regional champions will be decided on the day.
Each regional champion, along with a key member of their staff, will attend the final selection at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London, which involves a question-and-answer session with the judges the day before the final on Monday, November 19.
As well as the first prize, which has been sponsored by the Singapore Turf Club, the winner will also enjoy an evening at the Racing Post Juvenile at Wimbledon and a day's racing at Ascot in SIS's box.
