Ken's valued service honoured at Marburg
Ken Parker was presented with Life membership of the Marburg Pacing Association at last weekend's meeting.
The honour recognised his 30 years of volunteer work. Ken, 83, also been an owner, trainer and driver of many horses over the years.
Aged 80, Ken was one of the oldest drivers in Australia to drive a winner.
That was at Redcliffe.
Ken drove his first winner with a horse called Nancy Nan at Albion Park just after night racing began in the late sixties.
Last Saturday's presentation was announced with life member Brendan Sheehy and race caller Dean Jones.
