It was such a lovely evening – the drinks and snax in the parade ring set the “flavour” for the party! Amanda’s food was superb – a very smart evening and the music was produced by the Blignaut brothers – very good for dancing!! So nice having a girl from Summerhill stud to receive their award and as there are no longer TBA awards there were some v good new ones – I’ll ph you later and tell you about them – wish you had been there !!!!
