Aintree Racecourse’s Clerk of the Course and the North West Head of Racing for Jockey Club Racecourses, Andrew Tulloch, is to step down from his role in January 2020 after 24 years working at the home of the Randox Health Grand National.
During his time at Aintree, Tulloch has played a major role in the rising success of the Grand National and has been a pivotal figure in promoting the safety and welfare of horses at the track, and across the industry.
Tulloch was fundamental to the £1.5million of changes to the Grand National course, fences and welfare facilities which have resulted in continual improvements to horse welfare, and co-ordinated the major redevelopment of the racecourse with the construction of the new parade ring, weighing room and media centre, the Earl of Derby and Lord Sefton Stands, completed in 2007.
He was also joint Clerk of the Course at sister track, Carlisle Racecourse, where he had previously been manager.
“Being responsible for the world-famous Grand National steeplechase has been a privilege and I have enjoyed being involved with the development and innovation to ensure Aintree, and the Grand National, remain at the forefront of both equine and jockey safety, whilst protecting the unique character of the race," he said.
"I am looking forward to a fresh challenge and working with the team at Bolesworth Estate, who share a passion for horses and equestrian sport, overseeing the commercial activities, including their equestrian events."
He will remain in an advisory role with Aintree Racecourse.
