Ladies Charity Race at 2010 Cheltenham Festival

Tuesday 22nd December 2009

There will be a Charity Race for the first time at the 2010 Cheltenham Fesitval and this will take place on the Thursday which is ladies day at the Prestbury Park racetrack. To go along with the theme this race is only open to lady riders and this now completes the circle at the festival as all bases are covered, with races open to conditional jockeys and amateurs over the four days.

The race will be run after the six scheduled races on that day have been completed and will raise money for Cancer Research UK , which is this season’s chosen charity on Ladies Day.

Georgie Browne, the Official Ambassador for Ladies Day, will be one of the riders taking part in the race. Georgie, partner of champion trainer Paul Nicholls and regular work rider on dual Seasons Holidays Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Master Minded, said today: “I am thrilled to be the 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.”

Cheltenham’s Managing Director, Edward Gillespie, said: “This is an exciting addition to Ladies Day at The Festival for this season, which we hope will raise a significant sum of money for a worthy cause. “It is also an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Lady riders to take part in the special atmosphere at The Festival. Let’s hope a well-known face or two might be tempted to take part.”
