Chepstow Racecourse is naming a race after TV presenter Hayley Moore following her recent act of bravery when she stopping a loose horse on the track.
Hayley made world headlines as far as Australia and the USA when she virtually threw herself at Give Em A Clump at the meeting on the 22nd May. The horse, trained by David Evans, had unseated jockey Fran Berry and ran loose completing several laps of the track.
For those who know Hayley and her upbringing in the Moore family with jockey brothers Ryan, Jamie and Joshua, her brave act wasn’t a surprise. It was a manoeuvre she was used to following similar experiences in the family training yard and gallops.
Phil Bell, Executive Director at Chepstow Racecourse said: “While I wouldn’t recommend anyone tries what Hayley did, she has more equine knowledge than most and in this instance, it proved a good decision for both her and the horse. We are pleased to recognise her actions.”
Chis Graham from 188Bet said: “Hayley’s headline-grabbing move happened just before a race sponsored by 188Bet so we are delighted to support the race in her name.”
The ‘188BET HAYLEY MOORE SUPER WOMAN HANDICAP STAKES’ will be run at Chepstow Racecourse on Monday 25th June.
There are seven races from 2pm and admission tickets are ‘two for the price of one’ in advance, so two for £18. Gates open 12 noon.
