: Tattersall’s has secured naming rights to the Elwick racecourse and conference and meeting venue in Hobart for 10 years.
Under the naming rights arrangement, Elwick will be known as Tattersall’s Park.
TOTE Tasmania chairman Michael Kent said the redevelopment of the racecourse as a tri-code facility and conference venue was obviously a major investment for the Tasmanian racing industry.
“Tattersall’s has been a good friend of Tasmanian racing over many years and TOTE Tasmania is very pleased it has chosen to continue to support racing in this way,” he said.
Mr Kent said the long-term arrangement included an option for a further period.
Tattersall’s Chief Executive Officer Duncan Fischer said he continued to be impressed with the work undertaken in Tasmania by the TOTE and the racing clubs to further develop the industry.
“Associating Tattersall’s with Elwick and the new conference venue is a natural fit for our company given the history of the relationship we have enjoyed with Tasmanian racing,” he said.
“The redevelopment of Tattersall’s Park has delivered Tasmania a multi-purpose entertainment venue equal to any in Australia and one that we are thrilled to be associated with for the next decade.”
Under the new arrangement, in addition to naming rights, Tattersall’s will continue to sponsor the Tattersall’s Thomas Lyons Stakes and the Tattersall’s George Adams Plate.
Mr Kent and Mr Fischer said the two organisations were very much looking forward to a successful future association with the racing clubs at Tattersall’s Park.
