The Victorian Square Trotters Association held its awards night last Sunday at the Maryborough Harness Racing Centre.

Dr Martin and Mrs Kay Hartnett along with Brad Angove were the major winners, each winning several trophies capping an outstanding year for both owners.

The night was again well compered by Glenn Conroy with his quick wit and anecdotes about life keeping the crowd engaged.

Les Chapman and the caterers are to be complimented for the meal and organisation of the night.

The VSTA would like to congratulate all winners and thank all of our sponsors for their generous donations.
