IDHL Group’s Doncaster Races Annual Social Event
Last week at IDHL Group we spent Thursday afternoon celebrating our annual event at the Ladies Day of the St Leger Festival at Doncaster Races. WMG have been attending the races since 2009 and we’ve had some wonderful times over the years. The races gave everyone at IDHL Group, including WMG, Ingenuity Digital and NetConstruct the opportunity to let their hair down and the teams to mingle for the day. Everyone enjoyed having a good chat on the coach ride to Doncaster and socialising at the races. The Doncaster Races hosts two of Great Britain’s 31 Group 1 flat races; the St Leger Stakes and The Racing Post Trophy in October.
Although not everyone at IDHL Group likes a cheeky punt now and again, the races were enjoyed by all who attended, with celebratory drinks shared by the participating teams. The team arrived in time to enjoy the 14:25 race where rider ‘Laurens’ came in at first place, shortly followed by ‘Dark Rose Angel’, a favourite of some of our colleagues. The 15:35 race brought several successes for Patrick Crier, Joseph Fitzpatrick, Tom Crewdson and Ana Leckenby who all got lucky with a 12/1 backing for rider ‘Laugh A Minute’. Well done guys!
With a few wins under their belts, sadly it wasn’t quite the same for some of our other newbie punters, who lost out on a couple of horses. But as the saying goes: you win some, you lose some.
We think it’s important to spend quality time at an annual social event. What is it that you do at your business?
