Saving goes all the way again at The Valley

November 2021 - MVRC Redevelopment Update

Moonee Valley Park renames McPherson Street to Feehan Avenue in recognition of influential racing family on MVRC. Moonee Valley Racing Club's new address now listed as Feehan Avenue, Moonee Ponds, VIC 3039.

Moonee Valley Racing Club consequently changed its address from McPherson Street to Feehan Avenue to pay recognition to the Feehan family who played a significant part in the history of the Club. John F. Feehan was vice-president of Moonee Valley Racing Club from 1917 to 1948 and was appointed Chairman just before his death in 1949. In 1882, John F. Feehan’s father Richard leased the family’s farm to Samuel Cox, who turned the land into the iconic racing track.
