Gosford Racecourse AKA The Entertainment Grounds will be getting an $8million facelift – with an additional 200 stables to be built. 

The state government funding comes as part of a larger $11.4 million investment at Gosford Racecourse – including the recently opened all-weather polytrack. 

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch visited Gosford Racecourse with Minister for Racing Kevin Anderson today to announce the funding. 

“The racing industry employs more than 850 people across the Central Coast and that is why the NSW Government is partnering with Racing NSW to help the industry grow in our region.” Mr Crouch said. 

Minister for Racing Kevin Anderson said “The NSW Government is committed to supporting the thoroughbred racing industry here in the Central Coast by investing in these valuable upgrades to tracks and stables,”

“You don’t need to go to Sydney to enjoy a day of high quality racing and this will only get better thanks to these capital upgrades made possible by the NSW Government.”

  1. How utterly disgusting. Surely that $11.4 million dollars could be put to better use – as in affordable housing for women escaping domestic violence for one. Just shows you how much clout the gaming industry has over our governments of all persuasions. Perhaps the Minister for Racing should step down from his ivory tower and check out the awful conditions in which some people are forced to live. Don’t forget this shameful amount is taxpayers’ money. I for one, would like mine spent in more humane ways.
