Racing Welfare’s Best Turned Out series this week moves on to Royal Ascot with all the runners in Saturday’s Wokingham Stakes in with a chance of winning the £250 prize.
Racing Welfare’s Best Turned Out aims to champion the efforts of racing staff in readying their horses to run. All yards with a runner in the race have been offered the chance to submit a short video clip or image of their preparations in the lead up to the race. The winner will be decided by public vote via Racing Welfare’s website; voting will be open from 6pm on Friday 19th June to just ahead of the start of the race at 4.10pm on Saturday, when the vote will close.
There have been some wonderful videos during the first two weeks of the series. Last week’s winner was Ella Jayne Smith from Richard Hannon’s yard with her gorgeous colt Man of the Night. You can watch her winning entry here: https://racingwelfare.co.uk/rwbto/
This week the public will be voting for their Best Turned Out in one of the most popular handicaps at the Royal meeting. All the submitted clips for leg three of the series will be published on Racing Welfare’s website and social media channels from Friday 19th June.

Racing Welfare’s Chief Executive, Dawn Goodfellow, said: “We are very excited to see our Best Turned Out series move on to Royal Ascot this week. What a wonderful opportunity to see some behind the scenes footage into the preparations for the Royal meeting. I would encourage everyone to show their support for the hardworking racing staff who send us their brilliant clips by voting for your favourite.”
