The club confirmed the exciting news on Thursday, revealing that from 1 August it will be known as Aquis Park.

“The synergy between the Club and this premium brand represents tremendous opportunity for us to elevate the experience for all our stakeholders and further accelerate our future plans.”
As part of the partnership, the Club will undergo a series of staged renovations and Aquis Park will feature signage atop A.D Hollindale Stand, at the track entrance, on the Winners Post and Stalls as well as throughout the venue and organisation.
In line with the Racing Infrastructure submission to Racing Queensland, Aquis says they are excited about the potential of “Night Racing”.
Aquis Australia Chairman Tony Fung said the partnership would be an important plank in growing the Aquis brand in Australia and was a further demonstration of the company’s commitment to the Queensland racing and breeding industries and the broader Queensland community.
“This deal is not only a naming rights program, but it is designed to be a true partnership between two companies dedicated to providing world class racing,” he said.
“The partnership is also an important part of our strategy to improve links between the local industry and Asia in both horses and real estate.
Aquis Australia CEO Justin Fung said the company was looking forward to working with the Gold Coast Turf Club to progress a range of opportunities at Aquis Park.
“We see this as a genuine partnership with a range of opportunities to grow our respective businesses by leveraging the expertise and resources of each organisation.”
