Lots of people, lots of door prizes and the attendance of three of our cabinet ministers! Their support of our horse racing is encouraging. Nice to have a government that realizes how much horse racing contributes to a healthy economy.
Many thanks to Mary Gamester for the plethora of door prizes; the banquet would not be the same without you. Special thanks to all of the door prize sponsors; you will be individually acknowledged in the next post. And thanks to everyone who came and made the banquet such a great evening.
