SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 10 February 1914
SECOND DAY. The enervating weather Thursday again militated against a large attendance at the race meeting in aid of the funds of the King Edward Memorial Sanatorium for Consumptives. As on the opening day, the attendance was not up to expectatious. The promoters of the meeting, however, worked enthustically, and with the assistance of the Bendigo Jockey Club the success of the fixture was assured. It is expected that a profit of about £300 will be made, which. considering the unsuitable climatic conditions, is very satisfactory. THE R-ACING.
