2017 Scholarship Winners Trip

2017 Scholarship Winners Trip

  • On November 6, 2017

The 2017 Steriline Racing Scholarship winner, Kane McCartin travelled to Singapore in late October to observe operations at the Singapore Turf Club Kranji Racecourse.

Kane, Assistant Racecourse Manager for the Melbourne Racing Club, was awarded the scholarship at the Australian Racecourse Manager's Conference held at the Auckland Racing Club's Ellerslie Racecourse.

From the knowledge and experience gained during the Steriline / ARMA Scholarship trip, Kane expressed interest in increasing the amount of turf nursery that they have at Sandown racecourse to enable a more thorough returfing program to be achieved.

When asked what he would say to others who are considering applying for the scholarship program Kane commented

"Don’t hesitate! Educating yourself has no boundaries, you can never not learn something that could change your future and the club you work for."
