Charity Racing Welfare has won a silver award at the Smiley Film Awards on Mar. 20. The honour was given for the racing charity’s 2023 Mental Health Awareness Week film, which depicts anxiety building up for a racehorse trainer. It was created in conjunction with Equine Productions and shows regular day-to-day scenarios that can adversely affect mental health in racing’s participants.

Held at Leicester Square’s ODEON Luxe cinema, the awards celebrated several categories, with the finalists decided by public vote. Then the judging panel selected the winners.

Racing Welfare’s head of communications and marketing, Nicki Strong, said, “It was a huge honour for our film to be recognised by an expert panel comprising high-profile and influential people from the worlds of fundraising, business, entertainment and media. We are extremely proud of the film and the role it played in spearheading our mental health campaign, and that it resonated with both those within and outside of the racing community. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Equine Productions for expertly bringing our vision to life, our actor Charlie Smith for giving his time and to Warren Greatrex and his team for allowing us to film at Rhonehurst.”
