Clients

Galloping To Give has a proven track record of creating exhilarating and educational experiences for the die-hard follower to others who are just scratching the surface.

We have organised many a morning on the gallops and stable yard visits as well as managing interviews on national media.

One of our values is to encourage. And we want to encourage you – whether that's as an individual or a group - to come and learn more about our business and what this superb sport has to offer!

Ecomotive Logistics

Ecomotive Logistics have embraced the Galloping To Give ethos by showing their staff a different kind of horse power. 
 
The Leicestershire based firm, who are one of the industry leaders in vehicle delivery, have kindly invested in Galloping To Give by taking all of our five packages and seeing the benefits to them for both business development and staff cohesion. 
 
Recently, they immersed themselves in Newmarket for the day with a behind the scenes tour at Tom Clover's yard before a visit up onto the gallops to see some of his horse's put through their paces. 
 
They were also fortunate to see Balgair, a four year old rated 79, who was due to run at Newmarket that afternoon in his box before racing, where he finished a respectable fourth. 
 
Next it was the short mile journey to the Rowley Mile course where they enjoyed an afternoon of racing with a delicious lunch, drinks and base for the day from the exclusivity of their own box situated across from the winning line. 
 
In January 2022, a team of their drivers enjoyed a stable tour and misty morning on the gallops at Alex Hales' yard just outside Banbury before heading to Warwick for their big race meeting of the year, the Classic Chase. 
 
We enjoyed hosting them and look forward to more events for their clients and staff in 2023.

Kim Bailey Racing

Kim Bailey is one of the most recognised trainers in the racing game having the extraordinary record of gaining victories in the Grand National (1990 Mr. Frisk) and the unique Cheltenham Festival double in 1995 of Champion Hurdle (Alderbrook) and Gold Cup (Master Oats). He was also on the scoresheet at the 2020 Festival with Imperial Aura.

Requirement

Establish an ownership syndicate with a focus on raising funds and awareness for charity as well as attracting new owners to the yard. The initial objective being to raise £10,000.

Reality

Three successful charity syndicates established since 2012 and still ongoing.

£50,000 (and counting!) generated to date for causes including Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital Kidney Patients Association, Kidney Research UK and Maggie’s Cancer Centre in Cheltenham.

Numerous new owners have joined Kim's stable having been introduced through our charity syndicates. The flag continues to be flown through Another Venture running in the colours of Maggie's Charity Partnership (pictured below) who is now in his fifth season of racing.

Countless mornings on the gallops for charity supporters, unrivalled owner hospitality at racecourses and visits to the charities to hear of the impact our donations are making.

Old Stoic Society

Requirement

The Old Stoic Society were looking for new and innovative ways to engage with more past pupils (Old Stoics). 

As a past pupil and having sensed a fair number of Old Stoics and parents were involved in the racing world, I offered my assistance.

Reality

In 2017, the OSRC was launched with a horse in training with Old Stoic trainer Alex Hales. The horse - Topper Thornton - so nearly read the pre-race script going down by a short head in a photo finish at 33/1 in a valuable chase at Carlisle! There has been much progress since then - both ups and downs - however I am pleased to say we have expanded into a second Racing Club on the flat with another past pupil, Jonathan Portman, in Lambourn.

There are now 25 past parents, staff and pupils on board as owners and now actively engaged with the society.  

Furthermore, both Racing Clubs continue to financially contribute to the Stowe School Foundation as their adopted charity. This is through funding of bursaries and scholarships for the next generation of Stoics with £20,000 raised to date. (Spring 2021).

Kidney Research UK

Requirement

Generate an attractive and alternative revenue stream with diverse media opportunities focusing on horse racing.

Reality

£12,000 raised through a bespoke racing syndicate (called ''Racing for Research Partnership'') that ran for three years - two more than the original brief.

Donations were received from owner contributions as well as a percentage from prize money earned by both horses. The charity's name and logo appeared on the Partnership's racing silks with  Sparville, one of our horses, securing a much celebrated win at Southwell.  

Richard Pitman was subsequently recruited as an Ambassador for both Kidney Research UK  having been an altruistic kidney donor in 2012.  

Further highlights included an interview at the Cheltenham Festival on Channel 4 to promote the charity's World Kidney Day 2013 campaign with Ambassador Richard Pitman (former Champion Jockey and BBC Racing Correspondent) alongside actor and Partnership owner Nathaniel Parker.

Maggie’s Cancer Centre, Cheltenham

Requirement

Establish a sustainable charity syndicate, raise £10,000 and an increased awareness of the charity's Centre in Cheltenham.

Reality

A two-horse syndicate was created running initially for two years called the Racing for Maggie's Partnership. 

Donations were received from owner contributions as well as a percentage from prize money earned along with the charity’s branding on the racing colors.  

The initial fundraising was smashed with £25,000 fundraised within 18 months and pleasingly the partnership continues to operate five years later still with Another Venture - one of the original horses.  

Media coverage was secured with articles in the Racing Post, interviews on BBC Radio Gloucestershire and on Sky Sports Racing. 

The Maggie’s Centre in Cheltenham also opened its doors for partnership members to bring them closer to the cause and allow them to learn about the work of the Centre that had been supported through funds raised from the Racing Partnership.  

One of the direct impacts was the increase in the number of counselling support patients and their families were able to receive as a result of the Partnership’s donations.
