RACING INTERESTS AND AFFILIATIONS – Michael's fervour for the future of The Valley is remarkable, encompassing its integral role within the Community and the Victorian Racing Industry. His passion is especially evident in his dedication to enhancing the night racing product and his efforts to draw international participation to the prestigious W.S. Cox Plate.

Over the years, this vision has continued to be refined and the Club is now embarking on an exciting period of transformation to create The Valley of Tomorrow.
