Tarzino Trophy Daffodil Raceday officially broke its fundraising record, raising close to $37,000 for Hawke’s Bay cancer patients and their families.
The previous record was $31,000 in 2016.
Hawke’s Bay Cancer Society manager Trudy Kirk was thrilled with the result and said the money would go a long way to helping those in the community living with cancer.
“We appreciate and applaud the partnership between Hawke’s Bay Racing, Westbury Stud, the New Zealand Racing Board and New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing who come together each year to support our cause.
“My team were impressed with the generosity of racing donors, the beautiful High Tea enjoyed by a hundred of our Daffodil Day volunteers, and the look of the course themed in daffodils. It was a fabulous day.”
