Vale Darren McPhail
Bendigo Harness Racing Club and Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) was saddened to hear of the recent passing of Bendigo committee member Darren McPhail.
Mr McPhail was on the Bendigo Harness Racing Club's committee for the past 13 years, holding down the vice-presidency for much of that term.
Mr McPhail served on the club's marketing sub-committee and was a long-time employee at Warehouse Sales, a trots sponsor.
A wake for Mr McPhail, who was aged 54, was held in the Raceview Function Centre at Lord’s Raceway.
A fitting tribute recalled a wonderful family man who would be sadly missed by everyone connected to the Bendigo club and Harness Racing industry.
