Betfair is challenging racing ambassador Rachael Blackmore to raise up to £250,000 for the Injured Jockeys Fund and Irish Injured Jockeys by simply riding winners. The Fund will run in conjunction with her short documentary film 'Serial Winners'...

Betfair is challenging the brilliant Rachael Blackmore to raise up to £250,000 for two racing charities this season simply by doing what she does best - winning horse races.

On Saturday 25 November (Betfair Chase day) we launched the Serial Winners Fund with an initial £100,000 donation and we will add £5,000 to the pot for every winner Rachael gets over the finishing line.

We finish up at the Grand National on April 13 and, over the last five years Rachael has ridden an average of 30 winners during the period, so the pot could reach that £250,000 mark.

Donation going to IJF and IIF

Proceeds will be shared evenly between the two charities that make a major difference to the lives of jockeys in both the UK and Ireland, the 'Injured Jockeys Fund' and 'Irish Injured Jockeys'.

The Injured Jockey's Fund does superb work for riders in the sport.

The charity has helped more than 1,000 jockeys and their families since starting in 1964, distributing more than £20 million in charitable assistance since its existence and Betfair's donation will help fund the great work they do.

Recent injuries to participants serve as a timely reminder that these activities and services come with costs, which this fund will help support.

Betfair Ambassador Rachael Blackmore said: "This is a very generous initiative from Betfair and one that I am excited to be a part of over the coming season.

"The work of IIJ and IJF is vital in providing support services for jockeys past and present. It's great to have Betfair supporting not only me, but two organisations that are so important to us as jockeys."

Rachael Blackmore Serial Winners Premiere

The Serial Winners Fund goes hand in hand with the release of her short sports documentary film 'Rachael Blackmore: The Game Changer', that premiered on Saturday at Haydock.

While Rachael wasn't at Haydock on Saturday she could get the Fund off to a quick start as she will be at Punchestown over the weekend where she has a handful of nice rides.

We wish her the best of luck.
