Australian racecaller Craig Evans is headed home after just one season in Dubai.
‘It was swift and brutal. Great experience in Dubai with some outstanding people’, tweeted Evans with a copy of his cancelled passport page.
Evans, who replaced Terry Spargo on the seasonal contract, is a well-respected figure in the industry and has a wealth of international experience spanning across three decades, which includes stints at prominent racecourses in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Japan and South Africa.
Evans, who returned to Australia after 9 years calling races in Singapore, was approached by the ERA to take up the seasonal position.
A career highlight for Evans was being invited to call two days of racing at Santa Anita in California – the home of the 2016 Breeders Cup.
He has not disclosed his future plans at this stage.
