New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing announced "a full review of NZTR governance." NZTR explianed it "is seeking to establish clarity over the best possible future governance structure & processes for NZTR, as well as aim to improve industry understanding of the Board's roles & to stimulate other thoroughbred industry Committees & Boards to consider reviewing their governance models." NZTR chairman Guy Sargent noted: "The 1st & critical stage of this Review will be to gain a comprehensive understanding of stakeholder perceptions. The Board has agreed on a qualitative approach, using both group discussions & in-depth interviews with a wide range of industry participants. This aims to drill down into the deeper perceptions & attitudes that stakeholders have to NZTR governance & what recommendations stakeholders might have for improvement. Key findings will be announced at our Annual General Meeting on 27 November at Riccarton Park in Christchurch & the full Report will be made public after the AGM. At that point we will invite public submissions."
