Horse Racing Foundation

The Racing Foundation was established in 2012 with funding derived from the UK government’s sale of the Horserace Totalisator Board (“Tote”). The Racing Foundation aims to use these funds to achieve a lasting legacy for the sport of horseracing.

The Foundation makes grants to charities associated with the UK horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industry, supporting work in social welfare, training and education, racehorse welfare, equine science research, heritage and culture.

It does this by offering an open grants programme, three times a year; by investigating pro-active funding initiatives to address issues faced by the industry and by offering a range of organisational support opportunities to racing charities. Since inception we have now awarded grants totalling just over £10million in support of a wide range of projects and initiatives.
