The new C&J Equine Race Day Trials in association with Connolly’s RED MILLS provide a race day scenario, without the pressure of a competitive race meeting. Due to launch at both Lingfield and Southwell racecourses next month and with dates throughout the year, they are an important stage in the early development of many racehorses.
Craig Witheford, of C&J Equine, explains “the Race Day Trials provide a unique experience for unraced and experienced racehorses, with a race day scenario, without the pressure of a competitive race meeting. Statistics alone have proved that our trials produce many debut winners and help horses gain confidence on a racecourse. Our aim is to educate and prevent future problems for our client’s horses, whilst providing an enjoyable experience for racehorses embarking on their career.”
“It’s all about helping the horse achieve its ultimate goal” said Adam Johnson, UK Thoroughbred Manager for Connolly’s RED MILLS. “Whether that’s by providing our customers with the best in equine nutrition or by supporting the development of the young racehorse through initiatives such as the Race Day Trials. We are delighted to be able to continue supporting the racing industry.”
The first trials take place on 10th March 2023 at Lingfield and 24th March 2023 at Southwell. Slots can be booked via the C&J Equine website here.
