Gold Circle honours ‘Mr Racing’

2013-09-04 00:00

BILL Lambert’s love and passion for horse racing has earned him the KZN racing personality of the year award.

The award, given to him by Gold Circle, is testament to his 50 years of dedication to the sport. Nicknamed “Mr Racing”, the head of the DA caucus in the Msunduzi council was humbled by the acknowledgement he received at the 2013 KZN Owners and Trainers Awards. “It was wonderful! Just awesome!” he said.

Lambert served as the steward of the PMB Turf Club for 20 years and was appointed as one of the directors when the PMB and Durban Clairwood racing clubs merged in 1998. He became the first chairperson of the KZN Racing Association Chapter when Gold Circle restructured in 2002. He stepped down this year.

“I will continue to contribute wherever I can. I just love horse racing so much! … My father, Frank Lambert, was the chairman of Scottsville. I’m so passionate about the sport because you get to meet people from all walks of life at the events,” Lambert told The Witness.
