Doddington SMBC hosted its annual Hog Roast & Race Night on Saturday 1st September which attracted a sell-out crowd filling the Village Hall with over 120 racegoers.  Eight races were scheduled for punters to bet on their favourite horse.  As the bets were being placed the excitement was building around the hall waiting for the races to commence.  As the races approached the finishing line the crowd were on their feet cheering on their horse creating a fantastic atmosphere throughout the evening.  The special ninth and final race of the evening was an auction race where ticket holders had the chance to buy a horse.  One lucky winner walked away with £98.00 as the winning owner.

This year the DSMBC Committee & Members were all involved in selecting a local organisation and a charity for the home of this year’s proceeds.  Doddington Village Hall were the recipients of the community donation and MAGPAS were once again the charity of the year.   The committee are delighted to report that £1076 was raised on the evening and both mentioned organisations will benefit from these funds.  This is the most this event has raised so far.

The club Chairman said ‘the support and feedback this year has been fantastic, this was the best turnout we have ever had so on behalf of the club I would like to thank everyone who contributed in any way either by attending the evening, donating a raffle prize etc.  A special thanks must go to our race sponsors who helped make the evening possible.  Next year’s event is already in the planning stage so watch this space ready to get your hands on the tickets for Hog Roast & Race Night 2019.’

Race 1 – Sponsor: The Three Tuns – Winning Owner: S King
