This year will see the fifth renewal of the Betfair Clock Tower Cup, running over seven furlongs at Doncaster Racecourse on Friday 5th July. As in previous years, the race has attracted a maximum entry of 12 stable staff riders, all of whom have been nominated to ride by their respective trainers.
The Friday of Racing Staff Week provides a double-hit of racing action this year, with the running of the Racing Staff Week Cup at Newton Abbot, held over one mile and four furlongs and designed to give those from the jump yards of the South West and surrounding areas the opportunity to take part.
Winning riders will receive a bespoke Betfair branded Gibson Saddlers saddle and trophy. A special prize is awarded to the rider who raises the most sponsorship money. All riders will receive a Racing Staff Week pro cushion whip sponsored by Sharp Nutrition, £25 Marks and Spencer voucher sponsored by Sanderson’s Solicitors and Careers in Racing branded clothing.
