National Horse Trust Says Thanks For Support

The National Horse Trust Raffle

The 163rd renewal of the L’Ormarins Gr1 King’s Plate at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday, was imbued with dedication and passion culminating in resounding victories and immeasurable moments of celebration.

With the excitement of South Africa’s purest race still being savoured post the event, the Sporting Post received a letter from Martin le Roux of the National Horse Trust.

The National Horse Trust wishes to congratulate Drakenstein Stud and Mrs. Rupert on Charles Dickens winning the Kings Plate.

We also offer our heartfelt thanks to Drakenstein Stud, Mrs. Rupert, Kevin Somerville and the assistance of Katherine Gray for sponsoring the most amazing prize to allow us to collect much needed funds for the National Horse Trust.

The prize consisted of a VIP invite to attend the L’Ormarins Kings Plate meeting in the 1881 room for 4 persons which included catering and drinks as part of the prize.

The feedback from the prize winners has been absolutely brilliant. In fact, one of the prize winners has raced at Hong Kong and Royal Ascot and commented that the day was on par with the best he had ever experienced at any other venue in the world.

Thank you once again for your sponsorship. Without your assistance the National Horse Trust would not be able to succeed in the wonderful work that the Horse Care Units are doing daily.

Kind Regards… Martin le Roux – National Horse Trust

The Sporting Post would like to commend the members of the National Horse Trust Raffle, powered by Hollywoodbets, for their continued efforts and dedication to the horse.
