Four different teams competed including the Stable Yard Team as the Spice Girls, the Paddy Power Girls from their retail shops performing "Its raining men", the trainers with "The Greatest Showman performance and Johnny taking a lead role" and the finale performance of a Queen medley from the jockeys. It was a hard fought battle but jockeys took the title for 2019.
