Feeling spurred on to support the charity Greatwood

We are delighted for the second year running to be supporting and partnering with Highclere Thoroughbred Racing in order to raise money for the fantastic charity Greatwood. This is a charity which does incredible work in the re-training of racehorses used in education programmes, teaching emotional literary and life skills to youngsters with special needs.

Highclere Thoroughbred Racing offer shares in racehorses that they put together to form racing syndicates. Each year Highclere run a competition called ‘Five to Follow’ with their preferred travel specialist partner, to raise money for Greatwood.


Each entrant to the ‘Five to Follow’ competition pays a fee and picks five horses from the Highclere syndicates that they think will be successful in the season ahead. Points are then allocated every time their chosen horses are placed in a race. At the end of the season, at their Yearling Parade on 21st October 2018, prizes are awarded to the Five to Follow entrant who has the highest and second highest amount of points.

This year we are proud and thrilled to offer two incredible prizes:


The Anam is a beautiful five star colonial beach resort located on Northern Cam Ranh Peninsula, just 20 minutes from Cam Ranh International airport.
