Local Boys done good.

S4anta 17 April 2007

A Canberra based business, Capital Play has beengiven the front running to win a contract that may give them the franchise to monopolise New York horse race betting.

“Among O’Farrell’s backers are Mark Owens who worked with the ACT Racing Club in Canberra, John Schreck, a former chief steward with the Australian Jockey Club and Hong Kong Jockey Club and Paul Brettell, former chief executive of Moonee Valley Race Club.”

And you all thought that ‘Canberras own’ Al Grasby had the connections… plus, we all know where Chirs Munce will be racing after his holiday in Hong Kong.
