GoFundMe For Dean Holland
The fundraiser for Dean Holland’s family has ticked over $600,000 as the racing industry throws its support behind them.
The GoFundMe, set up by prominent owner Tony Ottorbre, had an original goal of $500,000 but as of 8.30am on Wednesday had reached almost $615,000.
Racing Victoria has also pledged to donate $100,000 to the fundraiser to help support Dean’s wife Lucy and their four young children.
Ottorbre, who didn’t have a connection to the Holland family, kicked off the GoFundMe with a $100,000 donation.
Since then more than 2500 individual donations have been made with hundreds of industry participants including jockeys and trainers making significant donations.
