Alison Best

The Basics




The wife of former champion jockey Noel Best she was responsible for recording Brisbane racing results firstly with the Sportsman newspaper and then as AAP racing services manager. It was a vital role because the service ensured punters around Australia had access to the most minute details of horses, trainers and riders. At the Sportsman it was during the pre-computer age she kept statistics of every runner in a card system. In 1975 she was recruited AAP to handle its results service. She retired in the mid-2000s and died in 2008. The media centres at Doomben and Eagle Farm are named after her.
