Rob Burrow has raised huge awareness about the fight against Motor Neurone Disease with the Leeds Rhinos’ legend having been battling the disease for just over three years.
During that time period millions of pounds has been raised on behalf of Burrow by the rugby league community with his best mate Kevin Sinfield flying the flag and raising over £7 million.
Today an unexpected name was set to be trying to raise more money for the fight against MND and that name is Beep Beep Burrow.
Beep Beep Burrow is a six-year-old racehorse that is owned by the Good Racing Company and was set to make his maiden run of 2023 today at Doncaster races.
However, he has now been revealed as a non-runner meaning it will not take part.
That said, the Burrow family will be in attendance.
Any prize money earned by the horse goes straight towards raising awareness for MND with the Motor Neurone Disease Association and the Hospitals Charity being the two beneficiaries.
The second horse to be named after the Rhinos’ legend, Beep Beep Burrow runs in the 17-runner 3:30pm race and will have Craig Nichol riding him.
Burrow Seven was the first horse in association with the former Rhinos’ number seven, and having raced four times and achieving place money twice Burrow Seven has now been retired and will begin work as a therapy horse.
