A lot rid­ing on Anzac race­day

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

AS­COT Race­course hosted its an­nual Anzac race­day last week.

The day fea­tured a wreath lay­ing and flag rais­ing cer­e­mony to hon­our ser­vice­men and women, and there was a mo­ment’s si­lence.

The Aus­tralian Navy conducted the catafalque party, and the Kala­munda-Pin­jarra A-Squadron 10th Light Horseman Me­mo­rial troop led the ser­vice.

Vari­a­tion, rid­den by Brad Parn­ham, took out the Le­gacy Dig­gers Cup, and Zarantz, rid­den by Aaron Mitchell, won the $150,000 RSLWA Western Aus­tralian Cup.

“It’s very im­por­tant to us at Perth Rac­ing in pay­ing our re­spects and com­mem­o­rat­ing our An­zacs,” Perth Rac­ing man­ag­ing di­rec­tor John Yovich said.

“We were very grate­ful to see so many peo­ple join us, en­joy­ing great rac­ing, the tra­di­tion of the Le­gacy Dig­gers Cup, and the RSL Western Aus­tralian Cup.”

The Kala­munda-Pin­jarra A-Squadron 10th Light Horseman Me­mo­rial troop led the ser­vice at As­cot Race­course.
