Number four a real winner
There will be many people cheering on horses carrying the number four saddlecloth at Young’s TAB.com.au Carnival Of Cups meeting this Saturday night.
And it is all for good causes.
The Young Harness Racing Club is showing their support for Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Prostate Cancer Support Group by donating $500 to these charities when the number four horse finishes in the top three placings.
Harness Racing NSW will also match this donation meaning $1000 per race could be donated to either charity if number four places first, second or third.
“We have decided to go with the number four as that saddlecloth is the colour that the MND and Prostate Cancer Foundation use,” said Young HRC Secretary Chloe Powderly.
Alternating the respective charities with the races throughout the nine-race program, a total of $9000 could be donated.
However, the donations do not stop there.
With the Team Teal promotion for 2017 culminating on this night the Young HRC and HRNSW have agreed to donate a further $1000 collectively to the Women’s Cancer Foundation if the driver of the number four horse is female.

Since the inception of Harness Education & Rehoming Opportunities (HERO) in July, 2015, one constant has been the Victorian trotting industry’s widespread support of the innovative life after racing initiative.
