Varma to clerk at Huntingdon

19 December 2011

SULEKHA VARMA, clerk of the course at Market Rasen and Nottingham for the past two years, is switching tracks in the Jockey Club Racecourses group to take up similar roles at Huntingdon and Warwick next month.

Cardiff-born Varma, 26, who spent her work experience while on the BHA graduate programme in 2006 as a reporter with the Racing Post, takes the place of Andrew Morris, who is moving out of the group to clerk at Chester and Bangor.

Varma joined JCR as a trainee clerk in October 2009, after working in the Arabian Racing Organisation office at Newbury and briefly returning to an earlier job as racing secretary to trainer Lucinda Russell in Scotland, where she spent her early years.

Verma said on Friday; "I have very much enjoyed my time at Nottingham and Market Rasen, and when the opportunity arose to develop and broaden my career further at two racecourses that are new to me, I jumped at the chance."

Huntingdon managing director Sophie Hodgkinson welcomed the appointment, saying: "We are sorry to lose Andrew, but I am delighted we have the services of Sulekha, who is doing sterling work at our sister racecourses."
