Zara’s patronage was officially announced at Cheltenham’s November 2023 meeting on Saturday the 18th. As part of the RoR Parade, Zara graciously accepted a cheque on behalf of RoR from Sir Martin Broughton, derived from the proceeds of his memoir, Whenever I Hear That Song.

“I am delighted to be joining Retraining of Racehorses as a Patron. The charity’s commitment to the well-being and retraining of retired racehorses resonates with my lifelong love for these magnificent animals. I look forward to working with RoR to promote their cause and help them to make a positive impact in the racing and equine communities.”

Managing Director of RoR, David Catlow, said:

“We are thrilled that Zara has agreed to be our new Patron. Her extensive experience in the equestrian world, coupled with her dedication to racing, make her an ideal advocate for our charity. Together, we aim to raise awareness, funding, and support to ensure that retired racehorses receive the care and opportunities they deserve.”
