Western Cape Equine Trust Charity Race Day a Winner!
The Race Day fundraising event on Saturday, 25 November 2017 was a huge success for the WCET team and its Re-Homing Program, raising much-needed funds to continue helping racehorses once they retire from the track.
We extend a huge Thank You to the owners, trainers and breeders of the racing community and horse-loving friends who filled the venue to capacity and made it such a fun day.
Special thanks also go to those who couldn’t attend but donated so generously.
WCET Chairman Ken Truter and cricket legend Robin Jackman got the crowd racing to the finish for fantastic auction items and raffle prize winners were all smiles – awesome prizes. Not to forget prizes also for the losing betting ticket! Thank you sponsors.
The 8 races on the day were also sponsored, namely by Betting World, Cape Thoroughbred Sales, Drakenstein Stud, Klawervlei Stud, Mayfair Stallions, Ridgemont Racing, Snaith Racing and Vaughan Marshall Racing.
Kenilworth Racing’s Kenilworth Room and a fantastic menu by Dish Catering added great flavours to the day and of course, the horses and jockeys added to the fun and excitement.
The WCET team are still smiling!
