Over 300 people attended a most enjoyable and interesting evening at the wonderful home of Newsells Park Stud to raise funds for the Puckeridge Hunt. It was good to see so many Puckeridge subscribers and supporters, along with a diverse range of visitors from racing and hunting backgrounds soaking up the atmosphere created by the beautiful surroundings on a wonderful balmy summer’s evening.
We were welcomed with canapes and drinks before the start of a most impressive parade of Newsells Park Stud resident Stallions, broodmares and foals (including Equiano and Nathaniel and a particularly attractive Mare and Frankel foal). We were then treated to a very entertaining speech by Sir Mark Prescott in which he relayed some very amusing anecdotes raising much laughter. The evening was rounded off with a most successful ‘Auction of Promises’ with some very impressive and, judging by the sums raised, desirable Lots.
