Calling all real estate amateur Ascot jockeys

THE ANNUAL Property Race Day is always a highly enjoyable fixture in the real estate industry calendar, as 700 thoroughbreds from the property world descend on Ascot for a day of racing and networking.

However this year the best will be saved until last, as 12 brave real estate runners will be donning skullcaps and grasping whips, as they hurtle down the straight mile in a new charity race.

Unfortunately the amateur race will take place at the end of the day’s proceedings, so our charity riders will have to abstain from the lunchtime hospitality on 12 July. But all for a good cause – or several. The beneficiary charities for 2013 are Landaid, Well Child, Wherever the Need and Project Hope.

The Capitalist hears that wannabe riders from Jones Lang LaSalle, Knight Frank and Savills have already jumped in the saddle.
