The Racing Welfare Stable Staff Stakes, Thirsk Racecourse

A Charity Race Exclusively for Stable Staff Friday

31st August 2018

In addition to Racing Staff Week races we will be having an additional Stable Staff Stakes at Thirsk Racecourse.

It will be exclusively for stable staff whos main employment is in a racing yard, staff must be nominated to ride by the trainer they work for and ride a horse currently in training with them. 

The race will run over 1 mile with a flag start and it is a Hands and Heels style race where whips must be carried but used only for correction purposes. Horses are to be rated 50-75 (or the jump racing equivalent rating) and The British Horseracing Authority have granted exemptions from the effects of Rule 204 (ii)(6) for this race as it is being run outside the Rules of Racing therefore it will not count for any purpose on the horse’s career record.

The minimum weight is 10 stone and riders must pledge to raise a minimum of £250 for Racing Welfare to be eligible to ride in the race. 

 For full terms and conditions as well as the trainer’s nomination form and rider entry form, please contact Mary-Ann Sandercock
