Tote Ireland today launched a Racing Club which has free membership for all Tote account holders.

The Tote Racing Club has chosen its first horse to represent its members, a yet unnamed Flemensfirth mare currently in training with Noel Meade.

Every Tote Account customer gets free membership to the club and will have the chance to enter competitions to become an owner-member, entitling them to a share of prize money and days out watching the Tote Club horse in action.

Tim Higgins, Chief Executive of Tote Ireland said: “Tote Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of Tote Racing Club. This new initiative is intended to bring the thrill of racehorse ownership a little closer to all our account holders. A smaller number of lucky account holders will become owner members and experience first-hand the unique buzz that will make this a very special club. I encourage anyone interested in racing to open a Tote account and enter the competition. You could be one step away from an amazing experience. Tote Ireland is committed to ensuring its loyal customers receive valuable benefits and will continue to introduce new and exciting rewards in the coming months.”

Trainer Noel Meade added: “I am really happy to be involved with the Tote Racing Club. I believe this filly that the Club has chosen has a bright future - she is very well bred and is working well at home. I am looking forward to her first run.”

Tote will run a naming competition on Facebook, Twitter and through their weekly newsletter. Get involved and you could be in with the chance of winning a VIP package to the Punchestown National Hunt Festival! More details of the promotions around the Tote Racing Club are available online at
