Successful and fun Horse Racing evening held at the Narberth Rugby Club

Narberth & Whitland Rotary Go to the Races!

A fun-filled evening of entertainment for all was had Friday 24 May when the Rotary Club of Narberth & Whitland held a remarkably successful evening of horse racing on the hallowed carpet of Narberth Rugby Club.

More used to running a stable of racing pigs, retired educator Rob Newsome provided an entertaining and “tongue-in-cheek" running commentary for all races whilst acting as “Tic-Tac” man for the local tote.

A full card of races was held throughout the evening, individual races and horses being sponsored by local businesses and individuals, to whom we are incredibly grateful.

Shergar and Red Rum may have been nowhere to be seen but “Fuzzy Pants” ridden by jockey John Llewellyn was one of the winners romping home at odds of 4:1 for young owner Leah James.

Race organizer, Rtn. Elaine Bradbury has advised that the event raised more than £1100 for local and Rotary charities
