Greyhound owner and trainer Ms Raelee Shearer held a Pink Ribbon Day at the Gosford Greyhounds on Tuesday, September 30.

As a breast cancer survivor, Ms Shearer said she is passionate about supporting the Cancer Council with her annual Pink Ribbon Day. She joined with the Gosford Greyhound Racing Club to conduct the 2014 event, with each of the 10 races on the evening program carrying the names of sponsors. This income, together with a monster raffle and donations, helped to raise substantial funds to assist the Cancer Council. “Where would we be without people like you?” said Ms Shearer when thanking all who were involved with the fundraiser. “With your support we can now make a real difference to women across Australia through preventative programs, support services and worldclass cancer research.” Special guests joined Ms Shearer for the presentation ceremony of the feature event, the Pink Ribbon Day Stake. The event was won by a large margin in fast time by Wuxi, trained by Londonderry trainer Mr Luke Azzopardi for Mr Chris Carl. Mr Carl’s father was on hand to accept the trophy. The event also saw the 515m Gosford track record of 29:30 broken by Avondale Al, with a time of 29.1.
