Racecourse award given
RACING By TONY McMAHON ? ROCKHAMPTON Jockey Club racecourse manager Graeme Green has described his win of a prestigious award as that of a "team effort''.
Green won the 2005 Queensland Outstanding Achievement Award at the annual national conference of the Australian Racecourse Management Associations at Ballarat, Victoria, last week.
The conference was attended by 140 racecourse managers from all States except Tasmania while drawing delegates from Singapore and New Zealand.
Formerly with the Gold Coast Turf Club, Green took over the reins at Callaghan Park in 2003 following the resignation of longtime manager Richard Harris.
Green said his win was recognition of the work put in by his workers at Callaghan Park.
