The early returns on the Shannon Campbell and Disabled Jockeys’ Fund Benefit Golf Tournament show $8,150 in the bank and more to come. The tournament, which was organized by the Virginia H.B.P.A. with Stephanie Nixon (here with Frank Petremalo and Jarrod Nixon) leading the charge, was once again a great day of fun with 15 teams and 51 players competing – both all time highs.

The tournament was held on Wednesday at Royal New Kent Golf Club adjacent to Colonial Downs. The team from Sandy Valley Farm captained by Doug Cox (below, 2nd from left) won first prize with an impressive 57(-15) on the par 72 links style layout. The VTA team was fourth after losing the third place tie-breaker at 61 (-11).
