Thumbs up for new HOYS venue

This year the Horse of the year Show moved from Wembley to its new home at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.

Organisers Grandstand Media confirmed that the show was completely sold out on four of the five days, despite extra seating.

Director Mark Wein explained: “It has cost us £600,000 to stage the show here, even more than in London, but it has been justified in the interest thathas been shown.”

Visit the site everyday from now until 25 December for some more memorable sporting moments of 2002
