Saddle up for Harrogate Lions Club Race Night at The Knox, Knox Lane, Harrogate, on Friday April 13 at 7pm.
It’s all about the Sport of Kings across the weekend with Harrogate Lions hosting a charity horse-racing night on The Knox big screen on Friday evening, ahead of the love coverage of the Grand National on the Saturday.
There will be eight races on the night, with eight horses and jockeys per race.
All proceeds from this family-friendly fundraising night are in aid of Harrogate Lions Project “a defibrillator on every corner.
If you want to own one of the horses on the night you can do so for £5. You’ll need to come up with a funny and quirky name for your horse. The winning owner in each race will win £20, with the other £20 per race going direct to the Lions fundraising endeavours.
Similarly, to be a jockey it is £3 per race, with £12 going to the winning jockey and the other 50% into the fundraising pot. There will also be a tote running on the night, so if you don’t get the chance to sponsor, own, or jockey a horse you can still be actively involved in proceedings.
