Liberton Race Day

Liberton Race Day

Liberton Race Day took place on Saturday, 2nd June to fund-race for the club.

What a wonderful day was enjoyed by all. The ladies were dressed to the nines and started with prosecco and strawberries on the lawn in lovely sunshine. We then moved inside for lunch and a glass or two of wine.

The races were great fun and having studied the form carefully bets were placed and a hilarious time was had by all.

A massive thank you to Sandra and Jill for their fantastic planning and organisation of the event. Huge thanks also to the bar staff, catering staff, Robert (the race organiser) and David Doig.

Even more thanks to those members who bought horses and jockeys…..
