Everyone is raving. Peter was extremely funny and read and controlled the crowd beautifully. He really made the presentation of awards the entertainment for the night. I've never seen a better or more universally loved presenter!
[My] overwhelming thanks to Peter Rowsthorn for an outstanding performance at the Harvey Norman Night at the Races at Flemington. He truly held the night together and was happy to do anything asked on the night. It was a particularly complicated program, we started about 30 minutes late due to coach timings and we still managed to finish at 11pm - with a lot of laughs in between. I will definitely be recommending him to my other clients!
