The NSW Trainer’s Association (NSWTA) welcome the partnership between Racing NSW and the Gosford Race club for the much needed improvement of facilities at Gosford.
It has been a long and tough process and we thank both parties for a great outcome. The NSWTA congratulate Racing NSW CEO Peter V’landys and Gosford Race Club Chairman Michael Cusick for their dedication in obtaiing a great result for Gosford and its trainers.
On behalf of the NSWTA we acknowledge the patience and sometimes difficult circumstances the Gosford trainers have had to endure over the past six years.
Press Release issued by Gosford Race Club below:
Racing NSW and Gosford Race Club are pleased to announce a joint training & stabling partnership that will rejuvenate the training precinct on and adjacent to the Gosford Racecourse.
The two bodies will jointly fund a new synthetic training track and Racing NSW will immediately commence planning for double storey stable complexes on land to be purchased from the Race Club. The DA for the track has already been approved with construction earmarked for early 2021. The new facility will be capable of training up to 200 horses a day.
Gosford is geographically positioned to become a training centre of excellence in NSW. The newly opened Northconnex with its vastly improved access to metropolitan tracks makes Gosford the ideal base for trainers with horses of all classes.
“Today is a monumental day for the Gosford racing industry, especially our existing trainers. Importantly however we will now be able to attract new trainers bringing more jobs to the area and boosting the local economy” Daniel Lacey Gosford Race Club CEO stated.
“Gosford is seeing a real resurgence of late and this project only adds to that. It is very pleasing that Racing NSW also sees the part that Gosford can and will play in the horse racing industry. The Gosford Race Club Board thanks Peter V’landys AM in facilitating this project and we look forward to working with Racing NSW to deliver our joint vision.” Michael Cusick, Chairman Gosford Race Club concluded.
