Cheering For Charity is a Moonee Valley Racing Club initiative that takes place every Ladbrokes Friday Night Lights race meeting.

Charities are carefully selected, and one is assigned to each night race meeting. Once acceptances are out, MVRC will then choose a horse to run for that given charity.

Cheering For Charity horses can be identified by the aqua and yellow saddle cloth (as seen in the image above).

Our Principal Partner, Ladbrokes kindly donate a $500 bonus bet to place on the chosen horse and will donate all profits if the horse wins. If the horse doesn’t win, MVRC donates $250 to the charity.
