What to expect on the day

Get involved in this year's event, which is set to be bigger and better than ever - and have a great day out at Wetherby Races while helping us at Sue Ryder continue providing care to people when they need us the most.  And with our new partnership with Poundland we have some great £1 offers to help people get involved in 2023.

Mascots first take part in the Mascot Parade in the official parade ring where punters can place their bets on their favourites. A number of prizes are up for grabs during the Mascot Parade, including Best Mascot  on parade. 

Following the parade, there is a one-minute mascot warm-up lead by 'Pound Hound' from our sponsors Poundland before the race itself. 

The race route

The race route on the day will be one furlong with six fences to jump over.

Mascot benefits

Mascots will be sent two complimentary race day passes (one for themselves and another for a helper) and can purchase unlimited extra half-price tickets (if ordered in advance) for supporters, colleagues and friends – making the event an ideal corporate, community group or family day out.

Under-16s get in free if accompanied by an adult.

The sooner you sign up, the more time your organisation will be promoted, so why not grab your payment card and sign up now?

Interested, but no mascot? Get in touch!

We have a ‘stable’ of mascots that can be 'adopted' for the day on a first-come-first-served basis.

Keen to fundraise for another charity?

We know that many good causes have mascots so we are allowing them to compete in the Mascot Gold Cup and keep all the sponsorship money they raise, provided they pay the £40 entry fee to Sue Ryder.
