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.

Purpose:

The Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards were initiated in 2005 to recognise the achievements of racing’s key staff, including on the stud side. They are run by the British Horseracing Authority, in association with the Racing Post Racing TV and sponsored by Godolphin. There are six categories with prize money awarded to the winners of each and both the runners-up. Furthermore, the prize money that the winners and runners-up receive is match-funded with the same amount awarded to their yard or stud, chosen charity.
