Five races for stable staff are part of the new format of Racing Staff Week from June 24-July 1, Racing Welfare announced on Tuesday.
Applications are now open to participate in the events, organised by Racing Welfare and sponsored by Betfair, and must be submitted by May 7. Racing Staff Week brings the racing industry and its followers together to celebrate racing staff, and showcase their passion, skills and dedication, across the breadth of the industry, without which, the sport would not be possible. The five races will be held at the following courses, up from two races in 2022:
- June 24 – Ayr racecourse – 6f
- June 26 – Chepstow racecourse – 1m2f
- June 27 – Newbury racecourse – 1m
- June 29 – Newcastle racecourse – 1m
- June 20 – Nottingham racecourse – 6f.
Michael Vokins, who won of last year’s races at Doncaster, said, “Riding in the race was an unbelievable experience. It gives you a small insight into what our jockeys are seeing and doing when we take our own horses to the races, and just to experience another side to being at the races that we don’t often see. There’s just no way of describing it [winning].”
