2010 Industry Awards


In 2010, the Thoroughbred Racing Industry Awards were combined with the presentation of the Hall of Fame inductees at a gala lunch at Morphettville Racecourse on Sunday 22 August 2010.

Celebrating the history of racing, the lunch paid tribute to the contribution the 25 metropolitan, provincial and country clubs - and their staff and volunteers - have made to the industry over the years.

Legends past and present were honoured during the three course lunch in the Panasonic Pavilion that was hosted by Channel 10's Mark Aiston and race caller Terry McAuliffe who gave interesting insights into the lives of each award winner.
