Congratulations to 'Team Rossdales', who took part in the Newmarket Heath Race and Stable/Stud Challenge last night. The race is a friendly but challenging 6k off-road race on the historic Newmarket Heath. Everyone in the team completed the race and stud vet Grainne Neary (pictured below right) finished as ‘1st Female’ in the Stud and Stable Staff category, while Tessa Stone finished as '1st Female' in the Over 45 category - a great achievement.
Each year Newmarket Joggers host this event to raise funds with a charity that has a direct connection with the Racing community. This year, the chosen charity to receive all net proceeds is Suffolk Mind. The Racing Centre will also be working with Suffolk Mind to help those in local racing community who may need support.
Thanks to Grainne for organising the team and to Nimrod Veterinary for sponsoring our team’s very striking T-shirts!
Thanks also to Mandy Davis, who has kindly allowed us to use her images, more of which can be viewed on our Facebook page.
