The Jacob Pritchard Webb Recovery Fund Silent Auction

Read more ...


We all know that racing is a high-risk sport. Every time a jockey gets legged up on their horse, they know they have 1/16 chance of having a fall and 18% chance that those falls will result in injury. 

When Jacob Pritchard Webb (Jake/Webby) was legged up onto Galant Des Boulats on Tuesday 23rd June, it was just another ride on a day where there seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary, until the horse fell. This fall has left Jake with several serious breaks, including ribs, his sternum and a number of broken vertebrae. However, one break is far worse than the others. A broken and displaced T4, has left him with a compressed spinal cord resulting in paralysis from the waist down. 

Having met Jake at College in 2013, and staying close friends ever since, I’ve been extremely fortunate to follow him during his blossoming racing career, which has now been sadly cut short. My fondest memory of Jake was when he rode Pantoxa to win the Novice Riders at Dingley in 2018, we both had rides in the race and lining up together, we both wanted to make the running! Jake bolted up, and I finished fourth, but I was so proud of him that day and have honestly never been so pleased to be beaten! 

Jake’s recovery will be a long journey, but it’s a journey that I would like to help ease the burden of, hence why we have set up this silent auction.  All proceeds raised will go towards supporting Jake with his recovery, however should he make a recovery in the long term, any equipment that may no longer be needed will be donated to the Injured Jockeys Fund. 

Many thanks, 
Alice Cosgrove.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
