On Saturday Go Racing sponsored the Group II Avondale Gold Cup at Ellerslie, which was the second year of sponsorship for Go Racing. “We think it’s important to give back to the industry we love.” says Albert Bosma. “The Avondale Gold Cup is an important fixture in the racing calendar and a great indicator for Group 1 future success. Previous winners have included Sangster and Whoshotthebarman who won the Auckland Cup and went on to run 3rd in last year’s Melbourne Cup.
“We hosted a lot of happy owners in a private box right on the winning line. It was a great day,” says Albert.
The following day Go Racing showcased its 2015 yearlings at Haunui Farm.
“Haunui are a great supporter of ours and fabulous hosts. The yearlings looked magnificent and our owners got the chance to see their horses and give them a pat.”
The weekend caps off the usual busy start to the year. Says Albert, “ We are so pleased with the yearlings we have bought this year. There are still some shares available but they are selling fast so do get in contact if you want to be part of the excitement.”
