The annual Proven Thoroughbreds/Steve O’Dea Open Day takes place at Kolora Lodge on Sunday MAY 1. It’s always a big day lubricated by sumptuous refreshments, good company, a few laughs and falls this year 24hrs after our filly CANDIKA (pictured) returns to the races.

There’s plenty of horseflesh to view as well with a number of the PROVEN team parading. We’ve upped the quality of yearlings for Steve to prepare for tilts at the $11m MAGIC MILLIONS raceday and the Brisbane Winter Carnival. Colts by leading sire SNITZEL, CHOISIR and the emerging LOVE CONQUERS ALL will be paraded plus our two LADIES ONLY syndicate fillies by SEBRING & CHARGE FORWARD.

Come along and chew the fat with Steve and I plus Kolora Lodge proprietor Peter McMahon & his staff about any of your horses from 10.30 for an 11am kick-off in the idyllic surrounds of Kolora, at 66 Moloney Rd, Waterford about 40mins from Brisbane just off the Gold Coast highway.

Everyone and anyone is welcome but for catering purposes we need to know who is accepting.

If you’re interested in attending, please contact Jamie Walter on 0418 281 447 or email
