Volunteer today for racing charities!


Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

National Spirit Hurdle Day in aid of The Racehorse Sanctuary

The most prestigious race in the Fontwell Calendar will be run for the 54th time on Sunday 24 February.

Fontwell’s richest race is sure to attract some of the country’s finest talent. This £80,000, Grade 2 race originated 54 years ago and is named after the dual winning champion hurdler, National Spirit. After the prize fund increased by a further £30,000 in 2016, the National Spirit Hurdle has continued to attract some of the best horses with excitement beginning to build for months in advance; recent winners include Old Guard, Lil’ Rockerfeller, Black Corton and more.

The Land & Power Premier Restaurant for this fixture will be hosted by The Racehorse Sanctuary and Re-homing Centre to raise vital funds for the re-homing of ex racehorses. Therefore it will include a raffle and live auction presented by Colin Brown, our resident tipster.
