Martin St. Quinton "has been appointed to chair the committee overseeing the financial plans" of Cheltenham racecourse's £45M ($69M) redevelopment, according to SKY SPORTS. Gloucester Rugby's vice-chairman and a long-standing horse owner "is currently also a non-executive racecourse committee director at Epsom." He said, "As far as jump racing is concerned, Cheltenham is the centre of the universe, and we are determined for facilities to match its hard-earned standing within British sport through this exciting project." The main development "will begin after the 2014 Cheltenham Festival and is set to be completed by 2015, with racing continuing as normal" (SKY SPORTS, 6/5).
