New GM Excited About Tamworth's Sunday Showcase Meeting

By Geoff Newling

Sunday’s Tamworth Jockey Club Showcase meeting is more than just a meeting where each race is worth $30,000.

It will allow the TJC to showcase its new general manager – Kay Jeffrey.

Kay, who had been head of marketing and sponsorship at the club for three years, has been the acting general manager for the last three months. “The last three months we have been very impressed by her performance,” TJC Chairman Greg Birtles said.

“She has a lot of great ideas for the club and plans to grow and develop the club, particularly with more community participation. She, as we do, has a genuine desire to get our crowds back.”

Kay Jeffrey is “excited by the challenge”.

She has been working with former TJC GM Helen Sinclair and this mother of two girls (Jessica and Breeanna) is hoping Sunday’s family day, with free entry, face painting, jumping castles and market stalls, is a perfect start to her GM role.

Married to Andrew Jeffrey, she had a background in equestrian events before she took the marketing and sponsorship job.

“I’ve been here for a while now and have expanded my racing knowledge,” she said.

“I love racing and I’m looking forward to the challenge of growing the club and increasing the community involvement. I want to share it with Tamworth locals. It’s a great sport with great atmosphere.”

She said Sunday’s meeting will be an outstanding day of racing with eight $30,000 Showcase races distributing almost a quarter of a million dollars in prizemoney.

“It’s going to have a great atmosphere with the face painting, jumping castles and market stalls," she said.

“There’ll be something for everyone, so if you’ve never been it’s a chance to come along and enjoy it all.”

The first race jumps at 12.45pm. View the fields and form (including race replays) for Sunday's Tamworth Showcase Meeting here.
