Racecaller is awarded life membership

HORSE RACING: For more than two decades Paul Dolan's voice echoed over the grounds of Corbould Park as he energetically called race after race.

Although recently retired, his dedication to the local industry hasn't gone unnoticed with the Sunshine Coast Turf Club awarding life membership to the well-known and well respected racecaller.

"Paul has been calling at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club since November 1996 (22 years),” Sunshine Coast Turf Club chairman Peter Boyce said.

"His voice is easily identifiable to punters throughout Queensland and Australia as Paul has been calling greyhounds, trots and thoroughbred races for the last five decades.

"In appreciation of all his efforts and dedication over many years, the board is delighted to announce Paul Dolan as a life member of the Sunshine Coast Turf Club.”

One of the many highlights of Dolan's career was successfully tipping all seven Sunshine Coast winners in a remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime feat back on Sunday, March 27, 2016.

"The board, staff and members wish Paul a happy and healthy retirement and thank Paul for his efforts and support of the racing industry,” Boyce said.

The Elimbah local travelled across the state and country calling races, with one his last being at the Ipswich Futurity race at the Ipswich Showgrounds in mid-September.

His last call at Corbould Park was on Sunday, September 9.

Corbould Park will host an eight-race card on Sunday,
