ATC Unveils New Canterbury Park Partnership
The Australian Turf Club's (ATC) long-term strategy to build and improve Sydney racing infrastructure took another important step yesterday under a partnership with property group Mirvac to develop non-core, surplus land at Canterbury Park. ATC and Mirvac will work with the local community, NSW Government and Canterbury Bankstown Council toward securing a considered and suitable development for a 12,800 sqm site that sits opposite Canterbury Park racecourse. ATC Chief Executive Darren Pearce said revenue from the development would be reinvested in infrastructure for racing, and improving facilities for ATC Members and patrons. "Building and maintaining world-class racing, training and customer facilities is the number one strategy for the ATC, and this partnership will allow us to further invest without affecting Sydney racing operations,'' Pearce said. "Canterbury Park is an increasingly important racing asset as it not only holds race meetings including our popular night racing program, but also facilitates important training facilities for visiting horses and the best local gallopers as they prepare for ATC feature races."
