Sanctuary News Flash! Sandown Raceday! & The Stranglers at Rock'n'Horsepower!


Our Charity Raceday at the iconic Jockey Club racecourse at Sandown Park is the social and fundraising highlight of the year for The Racehorse Sanctuary.  This event not only provides an exciting experience for our supporters, but also provides an essential contribution to the funds we need to raise to continue the dedicated work of the charity. 

This year our raceday will be held on Wednesday 18 September 2019 and is once again sponsored by our major partner Max Patel of St James's Place Wealth Management.  We owe a singular debt of gratitude to Max for her generous support, and the work put in by her team to make the event a success. 

We promise you that a day out at Sandown Park with your friends will not disappoint, as it provides fantastic value for a colourful and exciting sporting event.  Doors open at 11:00 am for a Champagne Reception, followed by a three-course Silver Service Lunch including half a bottle of wine per guest in the private Solario Suite, with panoramic views over the racecourse. 

We are putting together an exciting selection of must have items to attract your generous bids to our live charity auction.  These will again include some items money cannot buy and some great holidays. In the afternoon we will enjoy a full programme of flat racing, with afternoon tea to enjoy at your table.  There will be the chance to bid for some interesting and unusual silent auction items and to try your luck for raffle prizes. 

Put this important date in your diary and line up your friends. We are keeping the all-inclusive ticket prices to £99 per head, outstanding value for a day's entertainment of this quality.
