Doncaster Racecourse has teamed up with The Good Racing Co, a unique fundraising business, to add more prizes in the “Horsebox Hotel” competition for the Betfred St Leger Festival, which is aiming to raise some much-needed funds for the MND Association.

The competition was launched last week, with the help of Jamie Jones-Buchanan (friend and former teammate of Rob Burrow) and gives one lucky winner and guest the chance to win a night’s stay at the exclusive “Horsebox Hotel”. This is a stunning converted vintage horsebox located right near the heart of the action complete with beds, cooking equipment and outdoor furniture, during the Betfred St Leger Festival.

The Good Racing Co is a unique fundraising initiative aiming to redefine racing by dedicating horses from its stables to raise funds and awareness for different charitable causes. Created by the team behind the hugely successful Burrow Seven, which has raised over £180,000 for the MND Association and The Rob 7 Trust to date.

The team have got together with Doncaster Racecourse to kindly add to the already impressive Horsebox Hotel prize by also providing the lucky winner with a free Rob Burrow Racing Club membership and a stable visit to one of their trainer’s yards for up to four people.
