Racing League and The Racehorse Lotto, racing’s biggest prize competition operator, are thrilled to announce a partnership that will see The Racehorse Lotto become principal partner of a team competing in Racing League 2021.
The Racehorse Lotto will be partnering with the newly-formed Team 11, made up of Newmarket trainers George Boughey, James Ferguson, William Knight and Stuart Williams, who will replace the French team that can no longer participate due to Covid and Brexit issues.
The team jockeys, made up of Nicola Currie, Marco Ghiani and Daniel Muscutt will run in distinctive colours.
As part of the partnership, Racehorse Lotto will run The Racing League Raffle, providing the chance to win a horse in training with a trainer of the winner’s choice* as well as trips to Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and the Dubai World Cup. Racing to School, official racing charity of Racing League, will receive a 10% donation from all tickets sold.
Hugh O’Donnell, Racehorse Lotto Founder and CEO said “We’re very excited to be sponsoring a Racing League team, it’s great to be involved and we can’t wait for it to get underway. We’re keen to find new and exciting ways of helping the racing industry to grow, so the opportunity to be involved in the Racing League is fantastic.”
Oli Harris, Chief Marketing Officer at Racing League commented “We just love what Racehorse Lotto are doing to increase participation in the sport. They are raising substantial sums for charity, whilst also giving people the chance to win incredible prizes on a weekly basis. “They are yet another partner that is challenging the norm and is helping to bring further innovation and engagement into Racing. I am very much looking forward to working with Hugh and Paul closely over the coming months”
About The Racehorse Lotto
The Racehorse Lotto, which launched last year, provides the opportunity for racing fans to win life changing prizes and experiences – such as cost-free sole ownership of two thoroughbred racehorses for one year along with £30k cash and all the trappings of ownership.
Through their weekly national lotto draws and regular raffles, The Racehorse Lotto aims to introduce more owners into the sport, while simultaneously making racehorse ownership more accessible to racing fans and raising money for charity in the process. Since launching in March 2020, the Racehorse Lotto has raised more than £60,000 for charitable causes and provided the opportunity for no less than 15 people to experience racehorse ownership.
Hugh O’Donnell said, “Our aim is to offer racing fans the chance to win incredible prizes and experiences through our competitions and to raise funds for vital causes at the same time.”
