Tote to support Irish Injured Jockeys when racing fans find Danny Mullins during the Galway Festival

This Galway Festival, Tote Ambassador and top jockey Danny Mullins has been set quite the challenge by some bright sparks at the Tote. Danny will cost them €25 every time he’s ‘papped’ wearing a Tote logo, with all funds going direct to the Irish Injured Jockeys. Whether caught on TV, print or digital news articles, and even when tagged (@ToteRacing) in pictures from racegoers with one of the many “Where’s Danny” cut-outs on course, each sighting will cost the Tote. So, grab a picture with the trademark locks and help Danny make a difference with every snap and tag!

When the clock starts ticking Danny will have 169 hours between Monday 29th July and Sunday 4th August, to raise as much cash for the Irish Injured Jockeys. Funds will be combined with the money raised for Graham Lee at the Galway Races Summer Festival Ball on Saturday 3rd August.

Tote Ambassador and 27-time Grade 1 winning jockey, Danny Mullins said: “I’m excited for the challenge set by the Tote, let’s see how much we can get them to stump up. Be ready to grab a picture during race week to join in the fun. Along with all my weighing room colleagues, I am hugely grateful for the incredible work of both Irish Injured Jockeys and the Injured Jockeys Fund and glad to be playing a part in raising money for them.”

Lynda Reilly, General Manager at Tote Ireland, said: “The Galway Festival is always a fun week, and this year we wanted to make the most of Ireland’s biggest racing festival to show our support for Graham Lee and Irish Injured Jockeys. We know Danny and he loves a photoshoot, so I’m sure it’s going to be a significant donation by the end of the week!”

Michael Higgins, General Manager of Irish Injured Jockeys, said: “We are really grateful to the Tote for setting Danny this unique challenge. Our range of services are incredibly broad and we are reliant on our myriad of supporters in order to provide the care and rehabilitation required from the jockey community. We all wish Danny well and, with the help of racegoers, hope he can raise a big sum”.
