Senior Steward Has No Objection to Scrutiny of Jockey Club Role
Published: 11 October 2002
In response to Peter Savill’s press briefing this morning, Christopher Spence, Senior Steward, said:
“As Senior Steward of the Jockey Club, I have been encouraged by the support our regulatory work and record has been given by the racing industry in the last week. I very much welcome the BHB Board’s support and its recognition that the whole industry has a part to play in upholding the integrity of racing.
“After the BHB Board meeting on Thursday, Peter Savill outlined his personal views to me and I shall be interested to see what emerges from the BHB’s Racing Review over the coming months. During my conversation, I confirmed that the Jockey Club has no objection to having any part of its work subjected to close scrutiny. I now await Peter Savill’s detailed proposals for a joint review of our security function which will then be discussed by the Jockey Club’s Regulatory Committee.”
