Ladies Fundraising Luncheon

 

Kavanagh Racing hosted its inaugural ladies’ luncheon to raise money for the Cancer Council last Friday at St Andrews Conservatory in Fitzroy. Owners, family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the day and together raised $7,500.00.

“Our first luncheon was more successful than I imagined, we sold every ticket and together we raised $7,500 which is fantastic,” said Isobel Kavanagh.

“The feedback has been extremely positive, and already we have people offering auction items and wanting to book a table for next year.” 

“We can’t thank everyone enough, those who attended, especially those that travelled from interstate and of course those who donated.”

“Catherine (Shelley) did a wonderful job as MC as always, reminding everyone why we were there but at the same time ensuring everyone was entertained. Catherine’s band the Vi Queen’s (including Sharon and Shelley) were fabulous.”

“Sharon and Shelley opened with the song ‘Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves’ which was perfect. Marcie Jones was a highlight, as was Marilyn Monroe, the Rocky Horror Show Picture Show, everything really. It was great to see everyone up dancing having a great time.”

Kavanagh Racing are beyond grateful to those who donated auction and raffle items and have listed the companies below with a link to their websites. 

“We would not have been able to raise the money we did without the generous donations of these people/companies. Wedding Lane donated over $2,500.00 worth of beautiful Pearls which was extremely generous.”

Moving forward, Kavanagh Racing plan to support a different charity each year. 

“Cara did a wonderful job bringing it all together and we are already looking forward to organising next year’s luncheon to support another charity.”

“Thank you again, myself and Cara truly appreciate your support.”

Kentucky Breeze was back to his best at Moonee Valley on Saturday, winning the last race easily over 2040m against a pretty handy field.

A Deep Field of Golden Opportunities

This lovely colt by exciting young sire Deep Field has recently returned from our breaker Ray Matthews, who had nothing but praise for the two-year-old. To be trained by Levi, he has settled into his first preparation at Flemington like a seasoned racehorse. Purchased from the Inglis Classic sale earlier this year, there are still opportunities available.

Very unlucky last start at Flemington Racecourse, Helmaz more than deserved the win today. His jockey Lachlan King, who also rode him last start, was quietly confident coming into todays race.
