Western Fair’s Caretaker Finalists

The Raceway at Western Fair District has announced its five finalists for 2017 Caretaker of the Year. They will be recognized at the annual awards night on Saturday, February 17.

Horsepeople were asked to submit nominations throughout the month of January and the five finalists chosen will now be voted on by horsepeople this week at The Raceway to determine this year’s recipient. A ballot box will be set up in the paddock and voting will take place during the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday programs.

The five deserving finalists are Marta Dicicco, Brad Doyle, Cassidy Schneider, Tammy Durbridge and Taylor Fritz. All five will be honoured at the awards celebration and the winner will take home the Caretaker of the Year trophy.

Tickets for the awards night are still available at the race office or by contacting Amy O’Toole at [email protected]. Tickets are $40 per person or $45 at the door and the evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner, awards ceremony and DJ and dance to follow.
