It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our long-serving Racecourse and Hotel Chairman, Sir Ian Good, 80, passed away peacefully yesterday morning at The Beatson after a short period of illness.

Sir Ian had been on the Board at Hamilton Park for more than 30 years and he made an immeasurable contribution not only to Hamilton Park but also to Scottish Racing and the racing industry as a whole – he will be sorely missed by us all.

Our thoughts are with Lady Irene, his daughters Fiona and Catriona and the Good family at this incredibly difficult time.
