Racehorse Lotto, which aims to introduce more owners into racing while giving back to charity, is raffling the ownership of a Postponed (Ire) filly in training with Roger Varian for the year. The prize includes naming rights, registering the winner's own racing colours, and all racing, training and vet fees. Prizemoney-100% of the first £100,000, then 50% of any winnings above that–goes straight to the raffle winner. Twenty percent of ticket sales will go to Racing Welfare; Racehorse Lotto raised over £25,000 for Racing Welfare in 2020 through a variety of campaigns. Tickets are £10 apiece, and the winner will be drawn on Mar. 31.
Racehorse Lotto Champions Raffle ambassador Hollie Doyle said, “It feels more important than ever to have some light at the end of the tunnel and the Racehorse Lotto's latest raffle certainly gives everyone in racing something to get excited about. The pandemic has also hit areas of the racing workforce quite hard and Racing Welfare, who will receive 20% of all raffle sales, are currently providing grants for those in the industry that have been affected.”
Of the Meon Valley Stud-bred filly, Doyle added, “She's a lovely big filly by Postponed, who Mr Varian obviously knows very well, and she looked like a horse with plenty of scope and potential when I went to visit her in the snow last week.”
