About Racing League
The Racing League is a new-style format of horse racing, consisting of six race days spread across six weeks, with 12 individual teams competing on a points-based system. Each team has 2-4 trainers, 3 jockeys and a group of 30 horses to place across the six race cards.
The Racing League has a fundamental aim to engage and introduce a wider global audience to horse racing through the innovative, interactive, and accessible team – and points-based format.
During the British summer, the Racing League will make horse racing compelling viewing for sports fans, who love the drama, raw emotion and entertainment that team competitions create.
Goat Racing’s team manager, Charlie Austin: “Really looking forward to being involved with Goat, absolute privilege to be given the chance to be involved in this team! Fingers crossed for a successful season.”
Oli Harris from Racing League: “Goat and the young guys, along with Charlie, make for a perfect fit and we look forward to what they will bring to Racing League this year. We have worked tirelessly to bring new brands into racing, and with Goat we are introducing the next generation of business into our sport. I’m really excited to see how they promote their team to a new audience, and what that will do for racing as a whole”
Harry Hugo, Goat co-founder: “We’re really excited to be part of Racing League for its inaugural year. This new format for racing is both innovative and cutting edge – this very much aligns with Goat’s brand and how we operate as a business. We’re in it to win it and can’t wait for the first race day in July!”
