Stewarding under review

Stewards roomThe BHA has revealed further details of its formal industry consultation regarding the future model for racecourse stewarding in Britain.

The aim is to gather views on how to maintain the highest standards of racecourse decision-making as the sport modernises and becomes increasingly complex to regulate.

This consultation comes soon after the BHA implemented the proposals of the Quinlan Review, which increased the independence of its judicial functions, including the Disciplinary Panel which deals with referrals by Stewards from the racecourse and appeals against the Stewards’ decisions.

The current model of stewarding involves a mix of Honorary Stewards – who are unpaid volunteers – and Stipendiary Stewards – who are full time, salaried members of BHA staff. A Stewards Secretary assists the Stewards on raceday with administrative support.

The consultation will be a two-stage process. The first stage began on August 31 with a wide-ranging, eight-week industry consultation.

Detailed recommendations will be developed by the BHA and the resulting options will then be the subject of further consultation, involving the key stakeholders in racing.

ROA members are invited to feedback views to or write to: Stewarding Consultation, British Horseracing Authority, 75 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6LS.Deadline for submissions is 17 October 2017.
