FOR those who couldn’t get their backsides trackside yesterday, there was an opportunity last night to catch up with some of the racing industry’s big names.

Black Caviar trainer Peter Moody, top jockey Damien Oliver and TVN identities Richard Callander and Bruce Clark led a racing-heavy panel at the Koroit Football Netball Club’s Sport Lovers’ Night at the St Pius Hall in Warrnambool.

AFL journalist Mike Sheahan and former Carlton footballer and one of Koroit’s favourite sons, Adrian Gleeson, were also at the event, which is the biggest fund-raiser on the KFNC calendar.

The Sport Lovers’ Night has grown so big in recent years it has already forced one venue change to accommodate the crowd, organisers said.
