    Story

    Hearing about the tragic death of a man in OUR sport earlier tonight, affects all of us in horse racing, i would like to start an appeal to collect a few donations to be passed on to the family of Stephen Yarborough. Im sure we all agree what a fantastic job the stalls handlers do helping to keep our show on the road. These men travel all over Great Britain to do a very dangerous job and for Stephen to lose his life is horrendous. Lets raise what we can and then donate whatever we collect to his family so they can at least know we all appreciate there hard work and skill.

      £6250, i did think we would raise over the £1000 target but to be 625% over our target is amazing. I will leave up the page for 10 days and will then pass on all money collected to Stephens family. So many heartfelt thanks for everyones kindness Andy Smith
