Members of the Australian Turf Club Ltd have elected two Directors to join ATC’s Board at the Club’s Annual General Meeting at Rosehill Gardens today.

Current ATC Director Bill Evans was re-elected by ATC Members for a new four-year term, which formally begins on 1 February, 2017.

Candidate Angela Belle McSweeney was also elected by ATC Members to the Board, and will fill the position vacated by former ATC Chairman Michael Crismale, who had announced his retirement ahead of the AGM.

Ms McSweeney’s four-year term also begins on 1 February, 2017.

Australian Turf Club Chairman Laurie Macri thanked ATC Members for their participation in the election, and welcomed Mr Evans and Ms McSweeney’s election.

Mr Macri also thanked all 12 candidates for their involvement in the election process, and for their commitment to the ATC.

“The ATC Board and Executive are involved in developing and delivering a long-term strategy for Sydney racing, as we continue to make it one of the strongest in the world,’’ Mr Macri said.

“We are a modern and progressive Club, and our focus is on showcasing world-class racing, hospitality and entertainment, whilst ensuring our business returns surpluses to the racing industry, our Members and all of our customers.

“We have a strong and united Board with a diverse range of skills, and Bill and Angela Belle both bring immense passion and great experience to the racing industry.

“Racing and the thoroughbred will always be at the heart of the ATC’s business, and we are already looking toward the iconic Longines Golden Slipper Carnival at Rosehill Gardens and The Championships at Royal Randwick next Autumn.’’

ATC Members were able to vote online and by mail through proxy, or in person at today’s Annual General Meeting.
