Win a racehorse
RACING fans are being given the chance to win a racehorse for a year in a new charity raffle.  
The draw, due to take place next month, will see the winner 'owning' two year old gelding Tunza the Lion for a season. 
The horse will run in their name and racing colours of their choice and the winner will be able to watch it train and race as well as share in its winnings.  
The raffle is being run by Paul Clarkson, who runs a promotions firm for horse syndicates and racehorse trainer Michael Dods.  
Mr Clarkson said: 'I think it is the first time something like this has been done in racing.  
'The proceeds will be going to a children's charity called Tunza's Pride which is in desperate need of funds.  
'It is a great opportunity for someone to experience all the joy that comes with owning a racehorse - watching it train up on the gallops and inviting your friends along to the races to see it competing under your name.'  
Tunza the Lion is being prepared for his first race towards the end of spring, with high hopes from the trainer as his sire, Trade Fair, won five times, including two listed races, from 13 starts, amassing more than 100,000 in winnings.  
To be in with a chance of winning visit www.clarksonracehorses.co.uk where you will need to answer a simple question before sending off your 20 entry fee.  
The winner will be drawn from all the correct entries at the Haydock Park race meeting on 21 March 2009.

Banned owner loses final appeal over horses
A BANNED horse owner has lost a final appeal to keep the neglected animals, guaranteeing them a secure future.  
Redwings Horse Sanctuary took on 14 horses following a large rescue of 49 equines from North East Wales in December 2007.  
These animals have now finally been signed over into the permanent ownership of the charity, following several appeals by the prosecuted owner. The horses had been found by the RSPCA very underweight, with a bad worm infestation and crammed into overcrowded stables at a site in Penycae.
