Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

PERTH Rac­ing vice chair­man Ed­ward Rigg has re­signed for per­sonal rea­sons.

The avid race­goer and suc­cess­ful horse owner/breeder was elected to the com­mit­tee in Oc­to­ber 2012 and ap­pointed vice chair­man in Oc­to­ber last year.

Last Au­gust, as com­mit­tee­man, Mr Rigg sparked public con­cern that As­cot Race­course could be sold when he flagged on ra­dio a rad­i­cal move to con­sol­i­date thor­ough­bred rac­ing at Bel­mont Park in Burswood.

Perth Rac­ing chair­man ex­pressed grat­i­tude for Mr Rigg’s pas­sion and con­tri­bu­tion.

“My com­mit­tee and I wish to thank Ed­die for all his hard work and ac­knowl­edge his piv­otal role with the re­cent De­liotte 2020 Strat­egy - a re­newed di­rec­tion and fo­cus for Perth Rac­ing and we look for­ward to see­ing him and his fam­ily at the track.”
