STC Keeping Sydney Merger Options Open
Sydney Turf Club (Rosehill Gardens & Canterbury Park) directors "want more information about the merger before agreeing to form a super club with the Australian Jockey Club" (Royal Randwick & Warwick Farm), reported The Daily Telegraph. In a letter to members, STC chairman Bill Picken confirmed the Board met on Monday & "agreed in principle to further consider a merger with the AJC subject to receiving complete details of the proposed agreement". Picken said the STC would "continue to discuss merger options with the NSW Government, before ultimately putting the proposals to club members for consideration".
