CBC Twilight Race Day

Posted By CBC / 12 March 2015 / News / No Comments


It was ‘horses ‘n hooves’ scooping up dirt for CBC Construction recently when they got involved as sponsors for the second annual “Twilight Carnival Race Day” on 5 February 2015 at Tauranga Racecourse.

Managed by TRAC Racing, CBC staff and clients placed bets on horses for the afternoon, with a number of first time punters getting quite excited at their unexpected wins.

For experienced punters or covert bookies, it was all about scribbling notes on horse performance, weighing up their chances through light-hearted debate, and then placing their ‘educated’ bets in queues of other hopefuls.

As one of several sponsors, CBC was given the honour of naming a race, and with tongue-in-cheek came up with, “Winning from the Ground Up.”

At the end of the day, CBC competed very well in the “Charity Challenge,” which is where all funds raised are donated to a chosen charity. However, they were eventually taken out by Property Managers who donated the total pool of funds raised to the Child Cancer Foundation.
