Starlight Charity Race Day

Newbury & Kempton Park Racecourses

Newbury & Kempton Park Racecourses

Led by our Event Chairs, Nicky Henderson OBE and Christopher Hanbury, the generous racing community have raised millions of pounds for Starlight Children’s Foundation over the years at both Newbury Racecourse and Kempton Park Racecourse.

The day begins with a drinks reception for our invited guests and over the course of the afternoon seven races take place. During the Starlight lunch guests have the opportunity to bid on some fantastic prizes in the auction.

I have been co-Chairing the Starlight Race Day committees for more years than I can remember. Primarily in order to help this wonderful charity to deliver the vital services that they provide to so many seriously, and sometimes terminally, ill children. These days are always good fun and hugely supported by the racing fraternity.
