Santa Day races draw record crowd

MORE than 2000 patrons flocked to Horsham Racecourse for one of the biggest Santa Day race meetings in recent years.

Horsham and District Racing Club manager Lisa Inkster said the day had gone brilliantly for the club.

"It's record crowds for Santa Day, that's for sure," she said.

"I can't remember the crowd ever being this big I don't know the exact numbers but it would easily have to be 2000 plus."

Inkster said an expanded range of children's rides had proven popular.

She said the track was in perfect condition and each of the seven races had gone off without a hitch.

Inkster thanked the club's organisers for helping the day run smoothly.
