Movember makeover for Sandown.
However, Hoofington Post is happy to report it was not a random act of criminal damage, rather a special makeover to promote Gentlemen's Day and raise awareness for Movember.
Gentlemen's Day is on Saturday, November 9, the first day of the jumps season at Sandown. Off the track there will be an HWM Aston Martin Best Dressed Gentleman competition, although before you get overly excited the winner does not get to roar away from the track like James Bond. The prize is a trip for four to the Aston Martin factory in Warwickshire.
Rupert Trevelyan, speaking for Sandown's owner Jockey Club Racecourses, says: "Movember is a fantastic men's health charity that raises vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health, and the racecourse is delighted to be working with the charity for the second year running.
"Movember's theme this year is 'gritty with a back-tobasics feel that epitomises the roots of Movember'. We wanted to get behind this and felt that graffiti-ing the Movember message at the entrance was an apt way to promote the charity."
Sandown is giving racegoers sporting a moustache who are fundraising for Movember a PS5 discount on grandstand or premier enclosure admission when buying a ticket on the day.
Women named Tash - Natasha in other words - will also receive the PS5 discount, on production of a form of photo ID.
