The annual AJRA Mosstrooper Awards took place on Saturday night at Cargo Hall in South Wharf, Melbourne.
Around 200 jumps racing participants and supporters attended the event, which had a Peaky Blinders theme. Guests were kept entertained throughout the evening by dancers, along with a 200-glass champagne tower which table representatives helped to fill.
Marlee Horobin, Digital Marketing and Communications AJRA, says, “We felt that the night was received well as a celebration. With our new direction, we look forward to continuing to revamp the awards next year, introducing new categories and providing the jumps racing community with a celebration and recognition that they deserve for their hard work throughout the season.”
