On Friday Harness driver Ellie Barron promised to make a 100 metre dash in costume at the Northern Southland Trotting Club meeting if $1,000 was pledged to the  Teal Pants Campaign.                                              

And if the donations reached $2,000 it was to become a match race between Ellie and fellow harness driver Kirstin Barclay (also in costume). Southern Harness Racing Board member Tom Kilkelly also joined in as the Teal Pants campaign in the south is about to come to a spectacular end!!  

Barron won the dash with Kilkelly and Barclay dead heating for second. Donations reached over $3,500.

 

Update:

  • $7,353.40 (on course donations, dash for cash + $500 Caduceus Club, $500 SBSR & $200 Robin Dundee Club).
  • $3,600.00 (plus 6 teal pants wins in the South over the campaign @ $600 each = $3600.00).

  • $10,953.40  TOTAL RAISED BY THE SOUTHERN HARNESS REGION
