To offset the initial cost of the donkeys you should work hard on getting sponsorship from local firms etc. A rule of thumb for this is get a local firm or company to sponsor each race say £100. For this they get advertising in the program and can name the race i.e. (Local garage- BP handicap stakes). Then get a parent, friend, relative or local trader to sponsor each donkey for each race for say £20. They can then name the donkey. It is most unusual for organisers not to have covered our fees before gates open. Our prices cover all necessary equipment, transport and insurance.
