In the run up to the London Olympics, this year’s British 10K London Run will have six special runners with former racehorses taking the limelight as Retraining of Racehorses’ Charity Team competes in this race around heart of central London on Sunday 8th July. Retraining of Racehorses is British horseracing's official charity for the welfare of horse who have retired from racing.
So with the going expected to be good to firm, RoR’s Ex-Racehorse Team are confident of a winning result not only raising money for the charity but promoting the awareness of retraining ex-racehorses for life after racing at an event. The official RoR runners who will be representing their ex-racehorse are declared as:
BaBa Aurhum (run by Alex Phillips from Cheltenham)
Quite a Splash (run by India Thompson from Suffolk)
Wesley’s Lad (run by Sarah Moorhouse from Leigh, Surrey)
Port Moresby (run by Anne Lambert from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire)
Memameda (run by Peter Rhodes from Runcorn, Cheshire)
Toomyvara (run by Jenny Viner from Worthing, West Sussex)
Di Arbuthnot said; “ This is the first year we’ve fielded runners. It’s a fun way to promote the RoR and highlight the commitment and success of owners of ex-racehorses retraining their horses for fun and for new careers.“
The RoR Ex-racehorse Team are aiming to raise £2,000 for the charity. For more about retraining of racehorses visit www.ror.org.uk.
