Kelso Races pantomime horse race 2010 as sponsored by R. P. Adam

We are delighted to team up with Kelso Races for the third time and announce the Borders Barmy Army National Pantomime Horse Race 2011. The race is being held to raise funds for the BGH Macmillan Cancer Centre. This Pantomime Horse race will be taking place on Saturday 15th October 2011 and will be Bigger and Better than the year before!

R.P. Adam Ltd has kindly sponsored our race for the second year in a row! Plus many of the last year’s horse sponsors are also returning! The Borders Barmy Army goes from strength to strength as we continue to raise money for Local Causes.

As with last year, we are offering a cash prize for the winning Horses, the Saddle Cloths will be professionally printed showing sponsors names and logos. We have recruited an official photographer to capture all of the action and the prize giving ceremony! This will be a novel and great way to advertise your business and donate both to a renowned and deserved charity!

We would like to offer you an excellent advertising and fun opportunity:-

Horse Sponsor Package:-

1. Cash Prizes now on offer of 1st Place £100, 2nd Place £60, 3rd Place £40 Plus SPECIAL PRIZE for last place! This will be presented to the winning horses during our official winning ceremony.

2. Professional Printed Saddle Cloth with Sponsor Name and Logo.

3. PA announcement of your horse, business name and a few paragraphs of your choice explaining your business in front of 6000 spectators!

4. A good chance of TV appearance (Courtesy of Sky’s At the races! Some of the action was picked up both the last two years!). See below for YouTube video of our inaugural race 2009.

5. All Horse Sponsors will receive their logo in the race card next to their entry.

6. Free entry to Kelso Races for the two Runners in your horse.
Sponsors are asked to provide two adventurous people to run in their horse. The winners of our big race will have their photo taken with our official race sponsor showing the winning horse logo. This photo will be sent to the local press after our big day! Don’t forget your company logo may be show on Sky’s At the races if the camera picks up the action like they have done in the past.

7. We would prefer you to provide the 2 runners but we can supply runners if you require, there will be an additional charge of £20 for this which will go to the people we provide to run for you.

8. Each horse race sponsor will receive unlimited half price entry tickets (£10) to the members enclosure, so you can bring as many supporters as you like to cheer your horse on and enjoy a day out at Kelso Races

9. Kelso Races are providing the exclusive use of the “No nonsense bar” for The Borders Barmy Army, Horse Sponsors and all their supporters to enjoy the days racing in style. It would make a great “works day out” or a family/friends day.
