Fund Raiser For Injured Toowoomba Riders

The “Racing Reaches Out” fundraiser will be held at Clifford Park in Toowoomba on May 13 to raise money to assist the families of injured trackwork riders Ben Saunders and Wade Clasohm.

Saunders and Clasohm are still in hospital in Brisbane as they begin a long road to recovery from their horrific injuries sustained in a tragic fall furing trackwork at Clifford Park on April 8.

Toowoomba Turf Club chairman Kent Woodford said the TTC was honoured to be hosting the fundraiser in the Wippells Autos Grande Marquee at Clifford Park.


“These boys have an enormous battle ahead of them, it’s only fitting that the racing community band together to help raise some money to aid their recovery and help ease the burden of expenses on their families.

“We encourage as many people as possible to find it in their hearts to make a donation or attend this fundraising event,” Woodford said.

TTC CEO Blair Odgers said the club had received many offers of assistance from Racing Queensland and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission and local businesses in putting the fundraiser dinner together.

“The racing fraternity have certainly reached out and offered their assistance, which is wonderful. We want to see as many people attending this event, so we can raise as much as possible for Wade and Ben’s families as possible,” Mr Odgers said.
