Hunt On The Ball For Air Ambulance


10:20am 24th April 2013

Racehorse owner, Anthony Knott, has presented a cheque for £10,000 to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The money was raised by his eight-year-old runner, Hunt Ball, who ran in the Byrne Group Plate at the Cheltenham Festival with his hind quarters painted green and bearing the initials of Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power.

While the marketing stunt proved a fantastic boost for a worthy charity, it also landed Dorset-based Knott in hot water with the British Horseracing Authority, who have charged him and trainer, Keiran Burke, with conduct prejudicial to the integrity and good reputation of racing.
