The British Horseracing Board is delighted to announce the appointment of Trevor Beaumont as Racing Director. Beaumont, 51, has been a co-opted member of BH?_x0019_s Race Planning Committee since 1995, and his depth of industry knowledge will prove of immense worth when he takes up the position in the New Year.

A former Chairman of the Rails Bookmakers Association and, until recently, Managing Director of Coral Eurobet, Trevor Beaumont’s blend of racing and commercial expertise makes him a very valuable addition to the BHB Executive during a period in which its commercial activities are of growing importance to the industry.

Trevor Beaumont said today:

“I am very happy to be joining BHB at this exciting time, and am especially pleased to have the opportunity to play a significant role alongside Julian Richmond-Watson, Chris Reynolds and the Racing Department in further developing the racing product.

“Through my involvement with the Race Planning Committee, many of BHB’s racing team are known to me and I am looking forward to joining such a professional and dedicated department.”

BHB Managing Director Chris Reynolds added:

“We are delighted to have secured Trevor’s services to head up our Racing Department. Paul Greeves’ unique contribution since BHB’s very beginning makes his a hard act to follow, but Trevor’s presence will add a new breadth and perspective to our commercial thinking, and we are confident that he will quickly establish himself as an invaluable member of the team.”

Trevor Beaumont succeeds Paul Greeves, who has served as Racing Director since BHB’s inception in 1993, and who is leaving to take up a Senior Management role at Weatherbys Group.
