“Adam’s experience and implementation of the Acton synthetic surface impressed everyone, the award is well deserved”.

The awards are renowned for seeking out future managers and assisting them with their development for the future.

Ayre will be invited to attend the Toro Australia Sports Turf seminar, which is run for the turf industry and will give Adam him another accreditation towards his development and aspirations to become a metropolitan racecourse manager.

Ayre acknowledged the work and dedication of his team and the backing and support of the CEO Peter Stubbs and the Board of the Canberra Racing Club.

“I am very humbled with winning the award” he said.
