INFORMATION BULLETIN – Trainers’ Trust Rolls Into Adelaide / 21 September 2018


Race day at Morphettville this Saturday will see the running of the SKY/ATA Trainers’ Trust Handicap, a race designed to shine the spotlight on the national trainers Trust.

The Trust, established by the ATA in 2016, is the only Trust of its type nationally that supports sick and injured licensed thoroughbred trainers and their families, where this illness or injury results in an acute need for financial support.

“We are blessed to have our major sponsor, TABCORP, support this initiative nationally.”

“For the Adelaide leg, we are delighted to have the strong support of the SAJC, who host our race and on-course event each year at Morphettville,” said Nicholl.

Grant Mayer, CEO of SAJC said, “the Club enjoys a strong working relationship with the ATA, and is pleased to lend our support to this very important cause.”

We are also delighted to announce Thoroughbred Racing SA will make a further financial contribution to the Trust.  Having made a contribution in 2016 when the Trust commenced operation, TRSA will provide a $5,000 donation to coincide with the running of this year’s race.

Mr Jim Watters, CEO of TRSA said, “the work undertaken and assistance provided by the Trust to trainers is important to the health and welfare of those trainers and their families who find themselves in difficult situations.  TRSA is pleased to provide the Trust with further support in undertaking this work”

In terms of the national support provided by the Trust to date, some 16 trainers and their families from around Australia have received more than $80,000 in financial assistance.

Kind Regards
