Racehorse Training To Continue At Gosford
The Gosford Race Club and Racing NSW yesterday announced the continuation of racehorse training at Gosford racecourse beyond 31 December 2017. “Following discussions between the Club and Racing NSW it has been determined training will continue indefinitely at Gosford racecourse” Racing NSW Chief Executive Peter V’landys said. Gosford Race Club Chief Executive, Daniel Lacey commented: "Racing NSW has been extremely supportive of our trainers and has recognised the importance of Gosford not only in its current form but also for future expansion.” In recent months both Racing NSW and the Gosford Race Club have consulted with participants, studied relocation options and revisited factors that are important for growing interest in horse racing for racing in the region. “Racing NSW has concluded the continuation and preferably growth of training at Gosford racecourse is the best outcome for thoroughbred racing,” Mr V’landys said. He added: “There is likely to be a need for investment in training infrastructure and possibly stabling at some point in coming years. However at this time, it is vital participants be provided with certainty.” Thoroughbred racing contributes more than $71 million annually to the economy on the Central Coast.
