You Snooza: You win!

Jockey's Charity Dash at Kenilworth on Saturday

A novel jockey’s race, the Jockey’s Charity Dash, in aid of the oldest child welfare organisation in South Africa will be run after the last race on the Elusive Fort Cape Classic raceday at Kenilworth on Saturday.

Fifteen of the Cape’s leading riders will go head to head over 100m. This time it will be without a horse underneath them! The jockeys will don the silks of their sponsors and slug it out for a wonderful cause. Punters can select a ‘runner’ of their choice, fill out an entry form and make a donation. All monies received will go towards the Cape Town Child Welfare and punters stand a chance of winning a Snooza, which is a unique bed in an ottoman.

The CTCWS exists to ensure the care and protection of vulnerable and deprived children around the Cape Peninsula, rescuing them from increasing social ills, such as abuse, abandonment and neglect. In the last financial year alone, CTCWs seven contact centres saw a total of approximately 100 new cases every week. That’s 5400 cases for the year! In the last financial year alone, the Society placed 260 children in foster care in order to ensure their safety, while recruiting screening and training 148 prospective foster parents among many other achievements.

A lucky draw will take place out of the winning jockey’s box and the winner will walk away with the grand prize of two Snooza‘s, valued at R5000. To assist punters in making their selections, a profile and form preview of each of the participants follows.
