New syndicate raising funds with share raffle

One of the UK’s newest and fastest growing syndicates, Catch Us If You Can Racing, have partnered with Racing Welfare for 2023. The Newmarket syndicate, launched in September 2022 by Andrew O’Connor and trainer Dylan Cunha, have three horses in training already, with hopes to add one or two more by the end of the season.

Commenting on the partnership with Racing Welfare, racing manager Andrew O’Connor said: “We are excited to partner with Racing Welfare and support their efforts and hard work in assisting people in our industry from recruitment all the way to retirement. We hope to assist in raising awareness and much needed funds where possible and look forward to a successful partnership.”

To raise funds for the charity, Catch Us If You Can Racing have donated a 5% lease share in their two-year-old filly, Empress Lulu. Prospective owners will be invited to purchase raffle tickets priced at £10 each to be in with a chance of winning the share. The share will last the duration of 2023, with all training fees paid until 31st December. A minimum of 100 tickets will be sold before the draw takes place, with all proceeds being donated to Racing Welfare.

Empress Lulu is a bay filly by Muhaarar. Her trainer, Dylan Cunha, describes her as a straightforward type and hopes to have her ready for her racecourse debut in mid to late spring.

Racing Welfare’s Partnership Manager, James Schofield, said: “We are very grateful to Catch Us If You Can Racing for donating a 5% lease share in their new filly, Empress Lulu. It’s yet another exciting way for racing fans to get involved and support Racing Welfare, whilst also being an opportunity to dip their toe into racehorse ownership and potentially bag themselves a year of fun! Good luck to those who purchase a raffle ticket.”
