|Sandra, Jane, Alison and Stacey|
On Friday 11 October 2013 David Allen sponsored one of the races at the first Jumps race fixture of the season at Carlisle Racecourse.
Myself, Michael Peile, Alison Welton, Jane Clingan and Julie Osborn and 15 guests enjoyed the racecourses corporate hospitality in Swifts restaurant for the afternoon enjoying a delicious meal, followed by afternoon tea along with fantastic views of the course.
After enjoying an afternoon of hospitality The David Allen Accountants Novices’ Hurdle Race took place at 5pm. Prior to the race myself, Alison and Jane had the pleasure of judging the best turned out horse of our race, which was number 11 Tourtiere (and came 2nd in the race itself). The race was won by Sergeant Mattie and we presented the winning trainer Mrs Lonsdon, with crystal glasses following the race, plus we had the opportunity to have a brief chat about her and her husband’s stables in Chipping Norton, where they currently train 75 horses.
We would like to thank Carlisle Racecourse, The Jockey Club and Stacey Reynolds for their wonderful hospitality and our guests for their company.
