This year’s Race Day had a record turnout with over 200 guests arriving from far and wide, including visitors from both Aberdeen and Cornwall. A thank you to its loyal customer base for its continued support over the past 12 months, Glazerite was the evening sponsors of all 15 dog races. Breaking the bar bill record yet again, shattering last year’s amount by quite some figure, this, as well as the many sore heads reported the next day, is a good indication that fun was had by all. “It gets better and better each year,” said Glazerite Director Jason Thompson. “We continue to be grateful for the loyalty shown by our customers so it’s nice to be able to give them something back. Not only that, it was nice to be able to celebrate Glazerite’s 15th birthday.” Visit Glazerite’s Race Day was a success.
