Not only does Scott strengthen the Sungold Board, but his vast contacts and racing experience will be of tremendous benefit as we move forward with having Horsepower® legislated in several North America and Caribbean jurisdictions.

Richard Henley's appointment enforces Sungold's commitment to developing the promotion, advertising and marketing side of our business model. As we get closer to the launch date for the Horsepower® product, we have the opportunity to tap into a market (advertising and promotional) that itself is a worldwide multi-billion dollar a year industry.
