Edward Manners was no longer involved in an official capacity at these races WAL.

I believe that the person you refer to in the bowler hat was our former player and ex mayor- Charles Murless.
He was heavily involved in the formation of the new British Pony and Galloway Racing Association in 1899 under which, this particular meeting in 1902 was governed and he was reported in newspaper articles in association with the governing body at these races throughout the early part of the 20th century. I only have one other photo of him from 1878, but his features are the same and I feel pretty confident that it is him in the photo that you refer to.

Interesting-I know it’s not Wrexham but thought best place for it

Raised on the historical football kit site.....Sounds as though not as continuous as would like....Yes there was a Crystal Palace in early 1860's but not every season continuous to 1905.
