Chris Hughes launches UK’s first-ever National Racehorse Week

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘ITV Racing’ presenter Chris Hughes has launched the UK’s first-ever National Racehorse Week.
The former ‘Love Island’ star will join the nation in celebrating equines from September 12th to 19th 2021, during which trainers around the country will open their yards to the public so they can witness first-hand the care, love and attention that goes into looking after the animals.
Chris – who regularly rides racehorses at top trainer Jonjo O’Neill’s yard – said: “As someone who loves racing, I’m so excited that everyone will have the chance to go behind the scenes at a racing yard near them and see the wonderful care that horses receive.
“Racehorses are like family to the people that look after them every single day of the year and it will be brilliant for members of the public to meet their local equine stars, find out how they are looked after, chat to staff and see various different elements of a horse’s training regime – from being out on the gallops, to seeing the physio and even taking a dip in an equine swimming pool!”
More than 100 trainers from across the country will open their doors, and new stables are being added all the time.
Among those getting involved in National Racehorse Week are trainer Rebecca Menzies and her team in Sedgefield.
She said: “I am so proud of the dedication and care that my team take in looking after and preparing our horses every single day of the year.
“Being able to show the public what goes on behind the scenes is a fantastic idea.”
Activities will vary from yard to yard, and they will include meeting racehorses, having a tour of the facilities, watching the horses exercise on the gallops, and farrier demonstrations.
To find out which yards are open in your area there is a postcode search on the website that will direct you to the activity closest to your home. Visit to book your free place.
