New racing club raises vital funds for Racing Welfare

A new racing club has launched with the purpose of getting members up close to the action, while raising vital funds for Racing Welfare who support all of racing’s people – including those retired from working in the industry.

The Henrietta Knight Racing Club, which launched earlier in September, will be donating a share to Racing Welfare whilst the racing club will also be looking to support further throughout the year.

200 shares are available at a cost of £575 each – however there is also an opportunity to win a share by purchasing a raffle ticket through long-time partners Racehorse Lotto.

The club’s patron is legendary trainer and Gold Cup winner Henrietta Knight, whose know-how in choosing the right horses and selecting the trainer is pivotal. Diamond Egg, a three-year old gelding in training with Chris Gordon in Hampshire, hand-picked by Henrietta Knight will be the first representative of the club to be seen on the course.

He is a well-bred young horse sired by Diamond Boy, who is proving to be a popular young stallion and has had plenty of winners.

Club manager Shaun Christie of Henrietta Knight Racing Club said;

We are delighted to have Racing Welfare as our official charity partner.  We are in awe of the work they do and what they achieve and look forward to working alongside them in the coming years.

To be in with a chance of winning a share, go to the Racehorse Lotto Raffle to purchase a ticket at just £2 per entry. 100% of ticket sales will go to Racing Welfare, helping the charity to provide professional guidance and practical help to the stud, stable and racecourse staff whose dedication is vital for the well-being of racing.

Dawn Goodfellow, Chief Executive at Racing Welfare said;

We are thrilled to partner with Henrietta Knight Racing Club and Racehorse Lotto. Diamond Egg looks an exciting prospect for members, and we are very grateful to have been gifted a share to help us in supporting racing’s people.
