Bray People - - Out And About Around Bray -

BRAY MU­SI­CAL SO­CI­ETY was de­lighted with the suc­cess of its re­cent race night held in Hol­land’s pub.

Over a hun­dred peo­ple came ready to place a bet at the tote in the hope of winning a few eu­ros.

Over ¤600 was raised for the Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety and the funds will go to­wards their next show.

Each race was spon­sored by Hol­land’s pub and Bray Credit Union with the jock­eys and horses been bought by the Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety mem­bers.

There was no time for play act­ing as the se­ri­ous horse racing en­thu­si­asts stepped up to the tote to place their all im­por­tant bets.

In keep­ing with the mu­si­cal so­ci­ety theme each of the horses in the last race were named af­ter a mu­si­cal.

The cli­matic fi­nal race saw My Fair Lady neck and neck with Ar­gentina’s favourite lady Evita, but in the last hur­dle com­ing up on the in­side was Calamity Jane decked out in her checks fol­lowed closely by An­nie.

This all fe­male race had the crowd sit­ting at the edge of their seats.

And the red-headed An­nie got some fire in her step pass­ing all three ahead of her just in time to reach the fin­ish line in first place.

A huge cheer filled the room and with all the nail bit­ing ex­cite­ment many of the gam­blers stayed on af­ter the last race to spend their win­nings on a few drinks.

The mem­bers of the Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety were de­lighted with the sup­port on the night and hope that this will be the first of many race nights to come.

The Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety are cur­rently re­cruit­ing new bud­ding per­form­ers to join the group. bray­mu­si­cal­so­ci­ety@gmail.com
