Hayley wows race punters
CHART sensation Hayley Westenra dazzled Newmarket race-goers, giving them a grandstand finale to the day's racing.

The 19-year-old New Zealand singer, UNICEF ambassador and international classical music superstar, performed from the members' enclosure at the July course for thousands of punters.

They had enjoyed the second day of the July meeting before turning their attention to a free concert from a singer who has sung for Tony Blair, President George Bush and the Queen.

She was accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra for an hour-long show straight after the last race of the day.

The audience sat on the members' lawn and some brought picnics and chairs to give the racecourse a "stately home" feel for the evening.

The concert and the day's racing was sponsored by Classic FM.

Gaynor Haxby, a spokeswoman for Newmarket Racecourse, said: "It was wonderful evening for everyone and Hayley was fantastic.

"She is a real talent and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

"It capped off another fantastic day's racing at Newmarket races."
