With the Cheltenham Festival being held this week, it reminded us of the time when lockdown first starting affecting British horse racing. It inspired us to pull some Lockdown Numbers together. Some are very random ones, some interesting and some that are a good reflection of the work that has gone in over the past 12 months. 66 runners across 19 racecourses, with 27 jockeys riding one of 17 horses! And 8 of the runs were winning ones, not too shabby!
Despite some of the challenges that were presented, we moved fast to pull the cost down reflecting that stable visits would be impossible and that owners at the races was greatly reduced. The change to £100 was so successful, we have decided to keep the cost of joining at exactly that level.
Our trainers stepped up, and ensured that members always had interesting and varied content to read and watch and you can see a number of examples of that on our app by clicking here.
As you can see from the image above, we have pulled together an infographic of our Lockdown Numbers, and you can see the full version by clicking below and downloading the full image.
We are very proud of what we have achieved during this difficult period, and the support of our trainers, jockeys, admin, designers and members has been hugely important. We are looking forward to normality returning but while we await that we will continue to push forward as best as we can.
If you would like to join the Gold and Green Crowd, it is just £100 for 12 months and we guarantee that there is nothing else to pay! You can find more information on the horses, trainers and benefits of being involved by clicking here
