Liverpool. Local identity named chairman

Liverpool identity, John Cornish, has been named as the new chairman of the newly proposed Sydney Racing Club. Mr Cornish, who is the vice-chairman of the Australian Jockey Club, heads the new and united racing board, a merger between the AJC and Sydney Turf Clubs. The new racing club, yet to be officially named, is expected to start as the new entity in February. Mr Cornish led the way for the $16 million developments of Warwick Farm, which were completed in May 2009. He was also instrumental in attracting leading bloodstock agents and global thoroughbred organisation, William Inglis & Sons relocating from their long-time Sydney premises to building a multi-million dollar new site at Warwick Farm. Work is expected to start on this project later this year once Liverpool City Council has granted development approval.
