Ciera McKeown won the 2023 Newbury race | Racing Welfare

Nominations are now open for stable staff to ride in one of four charity races as part of Betfair Racing Staff Week (June 22-28), Racing Welfare announced on Friday.

The four race dates are:

  • Ayr Racecourse – Saturday 22nd June – Distance: Six furlongs
  • Chepstow Racecourse – Monday 24th June – Distance: One mile two furlongs
  • Newbury Racecourse – Tuesday 25th June – Distance: One mile
  • Nottingham Racecourse – Thursday 27th June – Distance: Six furlongs

Racing Welfare's corporate fundraising and events manager Clare Kingston said, “If you've ever dreamt of riding in a race, now is your chance. We have the opportunity for up to 48 members of stable staff to experience the ultimate thrill of riding in a race and I'd encourage any trainers to consider whether they have members of staff they'd like to put forward–it's not limited to one member of staff per trainer. These races always prove extremely popular and I'm sure this year will be no different so please get your entries in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Last year's renewals during Racing Staff Week collectively raised more than £70,000. To nominate, please visit the Racing Welfare website.
