Frankie Dettori to ride in the silks of charity lotto winner as racing raises money for NHS

RACING is doing it's bit to raise money in the fight against coronavirus with the Frankie Dettori Raffle.

Entries cost £2 and the winner will be an owner of a Flat horse for a day – with Dettori set to ride in their colours.

All proceeds from the competition, run by the newly-launched Racehorse Lotto and supported by Racing Breaks, will go to the Charities Together COVID-19 Appeal.

Not only will the winner get the services of Dettori, but they will get to create and register their own silks for the horse to carry, and be issued with four owners’ and trainers’ badges. The horse will contest one Flat race in 2021.

Dettori, said: “It will be an absolute pleasure to ride for whoever wins this amazing competition.

“It’s a brilliant initiative which I’m delighted to support and I hope that we can raise plenty of money for our heroes at the NHS, while also providing one lucky winner with the ultimate experience of racehorse ownership for the day.”
