North-West based syndicate operation, Mills Racing, have become the latest organisation to join forces with Racing Welfare, lending their support to the industry’s human welfare charity.

The partnership will see Mills Racing supporting in a variety of ways, including sponsoring an on-course challenge at the charity’s Close House Golf Day on 31st August, as well as sponsoring an award at the ROA Northern Racing Awards in December.

On choosing to support Racing Welfare, syndicate manager Darren Mills said: “To partner with Racing Welfare was an easy decision and an important one. Helping the ecosystem which enables horse racing to exist and all the wonderful people involved is a privilege.”

 The syndicate’s stable includes three horses:

Rapid Flight, previously owned and bred by Her Late Majesty The Queen, has won five times over fences since joining the ranks, including the prestigious Cavendish Cup Handicap Chase.

Mr Rumbalicious, a four-year-old gelding and son of Kodiac. He is already proven on the track, winning twice and placed twice on the flat from just eight starts.

Great Pepper, an athletic five-year-old gelding by the proven Grade 1-producing sire, Great Pretender. He has already proven himself to be a winner, with two victories from three starts on the Point-to-Point field. On both occasions, he displayed speed and stamina in tiring conditions.

Corporate supporters form a core part of Racing Welfare’s fundraising each year. Partnerships manager James Schofield said: “We’re very grateful to have the support of Mills Racing for the next year. Every penny raised and contributed through the partnership will help us continue to be there for racing’s people when they need us – the people who keep the show on the road behind the scenes and make our days at the races possible.”

Syndicates, racing clubs and other businesses looking to make a difference and help raise vital funds for Racing Welfare are invited to contact jschofield@racingwelfare.com.
