Goodie, Talty gone from VRC
Racing Article racing.com Staff@Racing   4:48pm

The Victoria Racing Club has made significant changes to its leadership team with the executive general manager of racing Martin Talty and the senior track manager Mick Goodie both leaving the club immediately.

The VRC announced that it made the move to replace both Talty and Goodie as part of 'an ambitious racing strategy to ensure it retains its unrivalled position as Australia's premier racecourse'.

VRC chief executive Neil Wilson thanked both Talty and Goodie for their contribution to the club and wished them both well for the future.

Wilson will oversee the VRC's racing portfolio until a permanent replacement for the position of executive general manager of racing has been announced.

It was confirmed that, effective immediately, Liam O'Keeffe will assume the role of senior manager of Flemington Racecourse.

O'Keeffe has held the position of assistant manager of Flemington Racecourse for more than four years, having been the track manager at Warrnambool Racecourse previously.

His considerable experience also includes six weeks of intensive track management and preparation in the UK at Ascot, York, Newmarket, Windsor and Goodwood racecourses.

 "The VRC is looking to drive the racing strategy forward with an ambitious growth and innovation agenda, essential to maintaining our leadership position locally and globally," Wilson said.

"We are delighted Liam has accepted the role of senior manager (of) Flemington Racecourse. His leadership qualities and extensive experience will enable the VRC to deliver on our short-term operational requirements and long-term racing strategy objectives."ENDS

Looks pretty sus that both these employees have departed  immediately IMO only reasonable to conclude they didn't leave of their own accord. :o

There are people in the media making out that the current bias problems at Flemington are something new.

We (the forum) have been commenting on the problems with the track for many years now.

All tracks need a refurbishment from time to time and sacking the track manager is not going to fix the current problems IMO.

Inflated fields compound the problems of  fast-lanes being overcrowded -- c.f the last 6 Mornington races on Saturday.

Nothing to do with it at all Peter.

Multiple rail moves when consistently racing will cause lanes then idiotic attempts to slow sections by aeration is always fraught with danger.
