Gowran Park

Remembering Denny Cordell

2015 marks the 20th running of the Denny Cordell Lavarack and Lanwades Fillies Stakes (Gp 3) at Gowran Park. Denny Cordell enjoyed a brilliant career in the music business. He produced "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and the great early records of stars such as Tom Petty & Joe Cocker and in his latter years signed and Developed Irish super-group The Cranberries.

It is the intention of his family and friends that the sponsorship of this race will create an annual event at which Denny's life and friendship will be celebrated with the same zest he himself brought to life.
