26 January 2015

THE BHA on Friday announced the appointment of Brant Dunshea to the new role of head of raceday operations.

Dunshea, 42, will join the BHA from Australia where he has spent much of the past 20 years working in the sport of trotting, most recently as chief operating officer for Harness Racing Victoria.

He will take on responsibility for starters, clerks of scales, judges and equine welfare integrity officers as well as the racecourse inspectorate and report to fellow Australian Jamie Stier, the BHA's director of raceday operations and regulation.

Stier said: "We are delighted to welcome someone of Brant's calibre to what is a crucial, senior and high-profile position. His expertise in all of the relevant business areas, including the operational management of racing events and a proven track record of the delivery of improvement to regulatory services, made him the outstanding candidate from what was an exceptionally high standard of applications."
