Over the weekend Galway Downs hosted its 21st Annual Fundraiser Clinic and it was an astounding success. Talented clinicians and riders from the West Coast (and beyond!) all gather to learn and to support one of Area VI’s biggest event venues. Proceeds from the event will go towards efforts to sustain ongoing improvements at the facility, which always strives to up the ante thanks to the vision of Organizer Robert Kellerhouse.
