Property Race Day Charity race – 14th July 2017




Where? Ascot Racecourse

When? Friday 14th July 2017 – Last race of the day off at 5.50 pm.


A race over the straight mile for enthusiastic would be jockeys (and 1 or 2 who are in fact amateur jockeys, which is grossly unfair!) who are all involved in the property industry, so surveyors, developers, etc.  Although riding racehorses is my passion and I ride out Point to Point horses regularly through the winter the challenge for me is that as I approach my 61st  birthday how much longer can I keep doing it! I don’t think there is any doubt that I will be the oldest taking part by some margin!

Why?(very good question!)

Part of the fund raising that is taking place on the day. The Property Race Day is organised by the Property Industry to raise money for children’s charities.

Fund Raising

To take part in the race I have not only had to pass an assessment at the British Racing School in Newmarket to Chris Boreham - Starlight racedemonstrate that I am fit and capable of riding a racehorse, I have to find a very generous owner who will let me ride their horse, a trainer who is happy to support the undertaking, find time to ride out on the gallops as much as possible and put myself through a rigorous training regime courtesy of jockey’s coach David Crosse, which involves an hour’s running and leg strengthening exercises every day.  On top of that I have to raise a minimum of £5000, £1000 of which is already paid so that leaves me with £4000 to raise.   
Details of horse to be confirmed! 



I have set up a page on Just Giving – justgiving.com/companyteams/chrisbcharityrace which gives the name of each of the 4 children’s charities that the donations will go towards. 

Donations can be made to whichever charity the donor prefers, out of:

SOS Children’s Villages UK
