To continue the worryingly sporty theme, this week saw the launch of the

Laser Racing Club, set up to allow adland’s many horse-racing fans to

‘enjoy the benefits and privileges of sponsoring or part-owning a

racehorse’.



Initially, what happens is that the Laser Racing Club will sponsor ten

horses for racing which commences in May. They will be trained by the

top trainer, Martin Featherstone-Godley. Eventually, the club will own

or lease more to run under its colours.



The initiative takes advantage of a change in rules which does away with

the limit on the number of owners a horse can have. Now, proud members

of the club can visit the stables in Newbury and go to the paddock

before a race. You will also be kept informed of when and where your

horse will run.



You’ve a long way to go to match JWT’s Simon Burridge, who profited

mightily from his bit of Desert Orchid, but if you fancy a go contact

Phil France at Laser.
