The Melbourne Racing Club is deeply saddened with the passing of legendary Committee member and former Chairman in Peter Begg Lawrence. Peter made a very significant contribution to the MRC over his 31 years on Committee and 11 as Chairman.

Peter’s enormous and unselfish contribution to racing and the Melbourne Racing Club is perpetuated in the annual running of the P.B. Lawrence Stakes. A fitting legacy for a man who gave so much to our club for the benefit of generations of members and racegoers.

Rest in Peace Peter.

Peter Le Grand JP
Chairman, Melbourne Racing Club
