William Sporborg has been appointed the new President of Jockey Club Estates. Sporborg succeeds Peter Stanley, who has been Chairman since 2018.
Sporborg’s new role will begin on January 1, 2023 and he has also been appointed as the Manager of the Jockey Club. Once an amateur jockey, Newmarket-based Sporborg is a chartered accountant. He has worked in private equity, venture capital and private companies for over 30 years and is currently a Managing Partner at Managing Capital, LLP. He has also served on the race committees at Huntingdon and Newmarket almost continuously since 2003.
Richard Pilkington, President of Nottingham Racecourse, is the new Director of Jockey Club Estates. He’s joined by former coach and blood-trafficking agent John Ferguson, who also recently took over as director of Jockey Club Estates.
Sandy Dudgeon, Senior Manager of The Jockey Club, said: “I would like to welcome William Sporborg as the new President of Jockey Club Estates. William brings a diverse experience to the role, which is important given the large real estate and land portfolio managed by Jockey Club Estates.
“In addition, I would also like to welcome John Ferguson and Richard Pilkington to the board of directors of Jockey Club Estates. These roles involve significant sacrifices of time and I’m glad we have two such elites ready to do so.
“Finally, I would like to express my gratitude and thanks to Peter Stanley, who has led Jockey Club Estates with excellence for the past five years. I wish him all the best for the future.”
