Charity Flat race added to Cheltenham Festival
CHELTENHAM has added another race to the third day of the 2010 Cheltenham Festival with a charity Flat race for lady riders joining the six scheduled races.
The race will take place following Thursday’s scheduled races headed by the Ladbrokes World Hurdle and the money raised will go towards this year’s chosen sponsor for Ladies’ Day, Cancer Research UK.
Georgie Browne, partner of Paul Nicholls, is one of those scheduled to compete and she said: “I am thrilled to be Ladies’ Day Ambassador for 2010 and riding in a Flat race will be one of the highlights of what I am sure will be a memorable day.”
Applications are being taken for the 1m5f race, which will have a maximum of 12 runners and is open to any lady riders, licensed or not, providing they raise a minimum of £5,000 in sponsorship each.
For race conditions and an application form please e-mail Sarah Oliver @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01886 884488. Applications close on 15th January 2010.
