Story

Two aspiring jockeys from the staff at Ascot have taken up the challenge to ride in a race at the World's Most Famous Racecourse.

No-one knows the track  better than the Clerk of the Course himself, 'Chris Stickels' and it is now time to see if he really knows it as well as he thinks! After years of being an arm chair jockey, has he picked up the skills of Christophe Soumillon??!

To add to the excitement, his very efficient Personal Assistant 'Beccy Green' has taken up the challenge to compete against him creating much rivalry in the office.

It is not as easy as it looks but we believe slow progress is being made (although Beccy is still trying to locate the stop button!). We would both like to thank the teams at Chris Gordon, Ed de Giles and Gary Moore for letting us loose on their racehorses in an effort to turn us into jockeys.

Please make the early mornings and mileage to ride out worth our efforts and donate through this website.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

THANK YOU - From Christophe Soumillon and Hayley Turner
