On Friday, 6th October 2023, we were delighted to welcome beneficiaries from Racing Welfare. Over 70 members from the Epsom and Lambourn communities were invited to join us for the day with the 15.22 race named in the charity’s honour. The day also offered an opportunity for those who previously worked in the racing industry to visit the paddock and get up close to the action.
