STANDARDBREDS for Breast Cancer Trials organisers Maree Lund and Lesley McAliece have weathered the storm that was COVID-19 to host their second show since 2019.

The organisers did not let the pandemic stop them from fundraising for their cause, and they were able to gather $1040 through raffles.

With restrictions eased, the 2021 Standardbreds for Breast Cancer Trials will go ahead on Sunday, with more than 30 entries set to dazzle the crowd at Kilmore Racing Club.

“With many shows having difficulty running this season, Lesley and I have been fortunate to have everything fall into place to allow our show to proceed,” Ms Lund said.

“Sponsorships have been coming in, with many continuing their relationship with our show, from 2019.”

Ms McAliece praised the generosity of individuals and companies who supported the show.

“Our major sponsor is the Kilmore Race Club, they have paid for the ribbons and sashes presented at this show; Kilmore Ford covered the cost of venue hire; Mz Sparkles, EQ Saddlery, Southside Stock Feeds, Tree Tactics and SSS Bargain Build – all from the local area continued to support us,” she said.

“Of course, there is a long list of generous people and companies from across Victoria and some from interstate as well.”
The event is set to start at 8.30am Sunday, with gates opening at 6.30am.
