On Monday 24th July, McClures sponsored a Barbecue day at Cartmel races. Our founder, Bill McClure, used to frequent Cartmel race meetings so it seemed fitting to sponsor the first race in his memory ‘The Bill McClure Maiden Hurdle Chase’. The first race was a thrilling one and was won by ‘Think Ahead’ who was trained by local Cartmel trainer James Moffat. Matthew McClure in fact went to school with trainer James in Cartmel, so it was an extra special sentimental win. It was truly a pleasure to welcome some of our valued customers as well as family and staff to this special day. The weather was good to us and a few of us even got lucky on the races.
