SAROA is delighted to advise that we have secured two great speakers for our Horses’ Birthday lunch. We are excited to welcome recently retired NSW Chief Steward Ray Murrihy as our main speaker, Ray served New South Wales racing with distinction for more than 40 years. We know that Ray will have some fascinating stories to share with us and those who have met Ray will agree, we are sure, that we are indeed lucky to have him join us on July 29th. While from a very different end of the racing spectrum, we are sure that our second speaker will also provide an enthralling view of the transition from struggling to get a ride in her home country Ireland to becoming a leading apprentice here in Adelaide. We are of course referring to Emily Finnegan. So we suggest you add Friday July 29th to your diaries and be prepared for a great lunch to celebrate our horses’ birthdays. Further details are available on our events page https://saroa.com.au/events/
