A mile and a half on the flat around Hereford on March 26th might not sound much, but I have always had huge respect for professional jockeys.
Life is short and given this precious opportunity, why not try and raise some much-needed money for a deserving cause? So, I'm electing to get off my backside and go and have a spin myself. This is a one-off, never to be repeated attempt, so please support me by sponsoring here - all funds go to St Michael's Hospice so if you can, if at all possible, give generously.
St Michael's is a wonderful Herefordshire-based charity, whose continuing aim is to provide the best possible care for people who have a life-limiting illness, as well as support for their families, friends and carers.
There is also the chance to come and encourage me (or more likely have a good laugh) on the day. You can book your own reserved table for the whole day's racing for £80 per person, including admission, two-course served lunch, complimentary race cards, waiter/waitress service and courier betting. Table sizes can be from 2 to 10.
You can get in touch with me, or book direct at:
