Local MP Wendy Tuckerman says there are “transparency and due diligence” concerns over a potential transfer of Goulburn racecourse land to Racing NSW.

In urging the Goulburn District Racing Club (GDRC) to provide more details on the deal ahead of a members’ vote next week, Tuckerman said there had not been enough dialogue about what the controversial proposal means for racing in her electorate.

“I honestly think that (more) time is needed to ensure that all the information is laid on the table,” she told The Straight.

“I have been speaking to different trainers and (a lack of transparency) has been their concern.

“It’s about the future, too. OK, $9.5 million goes into putting new stables in but what does the future hold?

“What other elements will be looked at? Those sorts of discussions need to be had.

“I’d like to think they would need more time to do that due diligence.”
