The weekend’s cutter races put on by the Jackson Hole Shrine Club are being termed a success by organizers, with 28 teams participating Saturday and 27 on Sunday. Profits from the 40th annual race will be used to benefit the Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. Bob Lundy of the club says approximately $9000 was raised through Calcutta wagering, and the profits beyond that will be determined in the days ahead. Racers were treated to about a half dozen photo finishes each day of the race. Lundy calls the crowd on Saturday one of the largest he has seen at the event. Current estimates place the crowd size at 2000 Saturday and 1100 Sunday which combined account for a 28% increase in attendance. One thing that aided with moving the crowd to and from the track was the addition of a START bus serving that route. Lundy says Saturday saw over 80 riders while Sunday’s ridership was about half of that. Lundy says once the bus route catches on in future years, he anticipates the ridership will grow. Members of the Shrine Club are thanking the community and members of the Rock Springs and Pinedale Shrine Clubs for helping stage the event. Top finisher for the weekend was a team from Idaho named Tuff-N-Nuff.
