Auction boost

THE injured jockeys fund was boosted by over £1,500 from a fundraising night organised by Langholm Horseracing’s Colin Barnfather that took place in the rugby clubrooms at Milntown.

Colin was assisted by Cyril Johnstone, and Frank Steele was the compere for an entertaining evening.

There was an auction which included items such as racing shirts, photographs and other memorabilia, along with a quiz.

A panel made up of representatives who are involved in the racing industry answered a variety of questions.

The members were Laura McGimpsey, trainers Jim Goldie and James Ewart, jockey Harry Haynes and Sky at the Races presenter Gordon Brown.
