Herefordshire jockey launches Racehorse Lotto raffle

Herefordshire jockey Hollie Doyle is throwing her energy behind Racehorse Lotto’s latest prize, a beautifully bred daughter of Postponed trained by top Newmarket handler Roger Varian.

One lucky entrant to the Racehorse Lotto’s Champions Raffle will win ownership of the filly for the whole of 2021, including naming rights and registering their own racing colours. All racing, training and vets fees are included, and any prize money* goes straight to the raffle winner.

Top female rider Doyle was keen to be involved in this latest campaign after seeing the success of Racehorse Lotto’s 2020 prize draws, which raised a total of £25,000 for Racing Welfare, including the Christmas Raffle where 32-year-old avid racing fan Tony Wood from Bromley won ownership of a two-year-old filly trained by James Ferguson.

Racehorse Lotto Champions Raffle ambassador, Hollie Doyle said: “It feels more important than ever to have some light at the end of the tunnel and the Racehorse Lotto’s latest raffle certainly gives everyone in racing something to get excited about.

“The pandemic has also hit areas of the racing workforce quite hard and Racing Welfare, who will receive 20% of all raffle sales, are currently providing grants for those in the industry that have been affected.

“She’s a lovely big filly by Postponed, who Mr Varian obviously knows very well, and she looked like a horse with plenty of scope and potential when I went to visit her in the snow last week.”

The Champions Raffle filly was bred at Mark Weinfeld’s famous Meon Valley Stud, the birthplace of greats such as 2019 Oaks winner Anapurna, dual Group 1 winner Speedy Boarding, three-time Group 1 winner Opera House and 1998 Gold Cup winner Kayf Tara, to name a few.

The Racehorse Lotto Champions Raffle is now live and tickets cost £10, with 20% of sales going to Racing Welfare, and a winner will be picked on 31st March 2021.
