VICTORIA Cup night should be a time to celebrate the game we love and that’s exactly what it was at Bendigo last Saturday night.

In the end, it proved a night to enjoy and, in some cases, reminisce on some of the most successful mainstays of our passionate harness racing state.

Of course, there was the ongoing dominance of Emma Stewart and Clayton Tonkin on full display again through the wins of Ladies In Red, Act Now, Jo And Jo and so much more.

But major roles from wonderful, long-serving players like David Aiken, Chris Alford, Jodi Quinlan and John Justice was the heart-warming and emotion-charged extra layer to a memorable night.
