And the Winners Are : Astute and Canada Brokerlink and the Fergus Legion!
The Grand River Raceway kicked off its 2015 season on June 1st with the sixth annual Local Biz Night Race.
OLG and the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce hosted the event with local businesses being paired with a horse in race nine. The evening started with a mashed potato bar, learning to read the programs and place bets and then off to the Captain's Quarters for a wonderful buffet dinner. Prior to the big race, teams were invited down to meet their horse and give it words of encouragement.
Prior to the official biz night race, everyone headed outside for a group photo opportunity and to loudly cheer their horse to the winners circle.
Astute proved to be the winner and Team Canada Brokerlink and Team Fergus Legion joined forces for a winning group picture.
Local Biz Night is a joint-effort between the raceway, the OLG Slots at Grand River Raceway and the Centre Wellington Chamber Of Commerce.
