Hambleton Racing have made Racing Welfare their official charity partner and will generously be donating to the charity whenever their horses are in action this month. Every time Hambleton Racing has a runner in June Racing Welfare will receive £50, an amount that will be doubled for every winner.
The successful syndicate have 31 horses in training for 2020 and are keen to get their owners as much racing action as possible this month.
“Making Racing Welfare our official charity partner is a natural step. We’ve actually been supporting Racing Welfare since 2009 and we very much hope the cash for runners idea will help their Covid-19 Emergency Appeal. Our owners have been hugely supportive in recent months and we’re now trying to get them as much racing action to enjoy as possible.”Cosmo Charlton, Racing Manager for Hambleton Racing
With eight runners in action during racing’s first week back it was a busy and successful week for Hambleton Racing, with impressive Newmarket winner Highland Dress among those with further race plans this month. Trained by Archie Watson, the progressive son of Shamardal now has Royal Ascot on his agenda, where he’ll be joined by at least two further runners.
Commenting on the partnership Racing Welfare Chief Executive, Dawn Goodfellow said: “We are delighted that Hambleton Racing has chosen Racing Welfare as their charity partner and that they will be supporting our Covid-19 Emergency Appeal with their cash for runners scheme. In such challenging times, we are incredibly grateful for this support and we have our fingers firmly crossed for them to have a successful season now that racing is back.”
