It has enormous opportunity for the NSW Thoroughbred Racing Industry including the establishment of a Racing Academy which will not only be used for the training of jockeys, trackwork riders, stablehands but for all racings workforce. In particular it will be used as an educational facility for Stewards. The property will also be used as the show piece for the Horse Rehabilitation Program and for a Quarantine Station” Mr Balding said.
