Nicholas Whittle | TfRI

Nicholas Whittle has been named the new Chair of Together for Racing International, while Trish Egan will be the new Vice Chair of the organisation. Whittle, who is based in the UK, is a specialist in sports and entertainment consultancy who has represented some of the world's largest brands, sports teams and individual athletes. He has also sat on the board of Jockey Club Racecourses for eight years, together with positions on the boards of several charities.

Whittle said, “I look forward to building on the important foundations that TfRI has established–helping improve people's lives, breaking down their barriers to success and realising their true potential in the world.”

Egan has a wealth of experience in corporate social responsibility in racing. Currently the Chair of the Australian Turf Club Charitable Foundation and a Director of Thoroughbred Breeders NSW, the Australian-based Egan will continue in those roles in addition to her responsibilities for TfRI. She also is a Non-Executive Director of the Australian Turf Club.

Egan added, “It is a pleasure to be asked to be part of TfRI and I look forward to working with Nicholas and the Steering Committee to bring some real progress to this important initiative.”

Outgoing interim Chair, Godolphin's Diana Cooper, said, “TfRI's ethos reflects His Highness Sheikh Mohammed's passion for education and encouraging the thoroughbred industry to support and to use our sport's unique asset, the horse, to reach out to its wider communities.

“Godolphin is proud to have been instrumental in establishing TfRI and we are delighted that Nicholas and Trish are so well placed to embed TfRI further in the core of our industry globally.”
