Novice filly working to create a safe place in a stable environment

The Unibet Racing #GoRacingGreen Grand National

The Unibet Racing #GoRacingGreenGrandNational was run on Saturday 5th April 2020, with commentary by Richard Hoiles.

How It Was Created

#PositiveConversations

When racing was cancelled I was aware that for many of us, myself included, this not only meant the loss of our "go to" distraction from life, but increased anxiety, worry and social isolation, so I wanted to keep positivity going by hosting chats on social media. As a result of the very first chat hour, where the theme was "If you owned a racehorse, what would you call it?" the #GoRacingGreen Grand National was created.


The horses were owned by members of the #GoRacingGreen community and ridden and trained by industry figures.


A huge thank you to everyone that took part, those involved and spectators. You made it incredible.

Community Engagement

As I am unable to get out and about and reach communities at the moment, I would like to thank The Kindred Group, Unibet Racing and Ed Nicholson for supporting this event through their community sponsorship initiative.

The Introduction

Mike Cattermole gave a superb introduction to the event, and the importance of raising awareness of mental health and inclusion within racing

The Parade Ring

Many thanks to Olympia and Olympic Commentator Gareth Jenkins for taking us around the Parade Ring prior to the race, and introducing the runners, riders, trainers and owners.
