We were delighted to once again be part of the VRC’s Melbourne Cup tour and to have the VRC’s support in attracting the participation of so many leading racing identities in our event.
The day was a fantastic success raising over $200,000 for the Ruben Centre in Nairobi and with what is taking place right now, this will go along in way in supporting their great work. To read a little more on Ruben – an Oasis of Hope, please click here – www.erf.org.au/programs/ruben-centre.
Leon Wiegard did a masterful job ensuring we could all hear from an array of big names including champion jockey, Wayne Harris, VRC Ambassador at Large, Joe McGrath, leading trainers Ciaron Maher, Peter Moody, Lindsey Smith and Archie Alexander, top owners Terry Henderson and Gerry Ryan (part-owner of the Cup winner, Twilight Payment), and international racing expert and commentator, Francesca Cumani. Leon was ably assisted by his podcast partner, Sam Kekovich.
