NZTR Appoints New Steward & 1st Trainee
Also in New Zealand, following the departure of stipendiary steward Andrew Ray to take up a position with Queensland Racing, NZ Thoroughbred Racing has appointed Ross Neal to the position of stipendiary steward based in Wellington. Neal (who has served on the Judicial Control Authority since its inception in 1996) will perform duties predominantly in the Central Region (with work in other regions as required through the recently introduced rotation programme). NZTR has also appointed its 1st trainee stipendiary steward: Ryan Smith, 23, who will "work closely with the Wellington-based stewards".
