NZ Chief Stipe Headed To Macau

Thursday, 16th July 2009

New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing has announced that chief stipendiary steward, Reid Sanders, will leave NZTR early in the new season to take up the position of director of racing & chief stipendiary steward of The Macau Jockey Club in the Special Administrative Region of China. Reid was appointed to NZTR at the end of the 2008 after working as chief stipendiary steward in Queensland. NZTR chief executive (Acting) Campbell Moncur, stated: "Although Reid has been with us for only a short time, he brought a whole new skill set to the organisation, and has had significant input into the integrity operations during his time here. Reid's exact departure date has not been finalised at this stage but is anticipated to be in the early part of next season. We will be making the most of his remaining time to finalise the Rules Review." Reid commented: "This has been a difficult decision and I will be sad to leave the professional team at NZTR. Racing in New Zealand has a strong integrity reputation internationally. NZTR will continue to build on this, not least through the training and development programmes we have introduced and the major initiatives currently underway, such as the re-writing of the entire Rules of Racing."
