The Royal Turf Clubstaged the ‘Spring Family Race Day’ on April 2 to thousands of spectators who thronged the race course up in Little England.

Despite the rain, all present enjoyed the day which apart from good sport, provided entertainment for the whole family. Sponsor Chavez Selvaratnam and family were delighted and in awe at the manner in which the races were conducted, as well as the quality of the entertainment, in this case the band Heat and the RTC Fashion Parade by Ms. Deepthika Jayakody.

Unfortunately, the rain gods decided to play spoil sport and eventually the 5th, 6th and the 7th races were called off,  keeping in mind the safety of the horses and jockeys as the underfoot conditions were not conducive for racing.
