Jump jockey act Wocket Roy & The Pwoducer will be running the bids at an inaugural charity ball in aid of a Shropshire horse service.

Hopton Rehab & Homing Centre is holding the event featuring an auction this Saturday at Ludlow Racecourse featuring prizes from top industry jockeys and trainers.

Auction prizes include a stable tour by Grand National winner Tiger Roll's trainer Gordon Elliot, tickets to Olympia Horse Show, in London, hop on bus tickets and admission to the Guinness Storehouse, in Dublin plus a £150 travel voucher, and a signed DVD from top jockey Sir Tony McCoy.

Rachel Noel, Artys Events, says: "We are pleased to announce that Wocket Woy will be joining us to auctioneer.

"There are a limited number of tickets available for a private meet 'n' greet plus an opportunity for a photograph with the boys."

Doors open at 7pm.

Meet 'n' greet tickets cost £20 per person and are available on the website

Mrs Noel says she got involved with the centre after her daughter Sophie rehomed former racehorse Shouldhavehadthat which was cared for there. The gelding was previously ridden by Sir Tony, also known as AP McCoy.
