The Board of Australian Pacing Gold has announced that David Boydell will stand down from his position as General Manager on 4th of July 2022.

Marketing Manager Dean Baring will step in as Acting General Manager while the APG Board discerns the future direction and structure of the Company.

Baring has been the voice and face of APG recently he joined APG setting up APG TV back in 2018, after helping South Australia run a strong yearling sale known as the ALLWOOD.

“The Board is excited about the prospect of reinvigorating the organisation and has been working diligently to put together a 2023 Yearling Sales offering that is sure to prove appealing to participants, said APG Chairman, Robert Marshall.

No doubt the entry by Nutrien Standardbreds into the standardbred marketplace, led by Mark Barton has created a major shakeup at APG.
