Racing Welfare Charity RacedayFriday 7th July 2017

Afternoon racing featuring the Racing Welfare Betfair Clock Tower Cup Stable Staff Charity Race

Racing Welfare Charity Raceday, Sponsored by Betfair and featuring the Betfair Clock Tower Cup for stable staff.

The Betfair Clock Tower Cup charity race for stable staff and the charity lunch at Doncaster are now in their third year and the day is the pinnacle of Racing Welfare’s initiative Racing Staff Week.

Racing Staff Week showcases the vital role that stable and stud staff, and indeed all the people who work behind the scenes, play in the production of British horseracing.  It also promotes the work that the Racing Welfare charity do to support racing’s workforce.

Trainers have nominated valued members of staff to realise their ambition of riding in the race and the atmosphere will be electric as colleagues, family and friends – along with jockeys who they will have ridden work with on the gallops, come along to cheer them on.

Please join their supporters and other racing industry enthusiasts at the charity lunch which has been organised to raise funds for Racing Welfare.  Tickets include a Champagne reception, three-course lunch and wine as well as an auction and celebrity tipster and are £130 each or £1300 for a table of 10.  To book tickets or a table please contact Mary-Ann Sandercock, or call 07790 844887 for more details.
