Jamie Laing recruits new Candy Kitten!
Jamie Laing, entrepreneur and star of Channel 4’s hit show “Made in Chelsea”, has ventured into the world of racehorse ownership as co-founder of The Candy Kittens Racing Club.
The Racing Club is just one within the Celebrity Race Clubs portfolio, offering customers the chance to mingle with their favourite celebrities while experiencing what it is like to own their own racehorse. Each group has a racehorse running under its name and in its colours and membership can cost as little as £10 per month, offering exciting opportunities to go behind the- scenes of the sport, as well as enjoy some top on-track action.
The Candy Kittens racehorse has been named by Jamie after his brainchild sweet shop, Candy Kitten, which opened this May in London. The two year old filly is trained by Alastair Lidderdale, in Lambourn, and is due to make her debut at Goodwood Racecourse on 14th October 2012.
Jamie visited his new horse last week, meeting female jockey Leonna Mayor, apprentice for Alastair Lidderdale, who rode Candy Kitten on the gallops in the Club’s chosen silks. He commented during his visit: “I am very excited to be adding to my Candy Kitten family with this fine filly of a racehorse and hopefully she’ll give us reason to celebrate during the coming months. Everyone is welcome to join in and I am looking forward to meeting lots of Candy Kitten fans at the races.”
