Harness Racing Australia (HRA) will be looking for a new Chairman as Mr Michael Taranto has advised the HRA Executive that he will not be seeking re-appointment as Chairman of HRA at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting. Following a decision by the HRA Executive Members, he has decided to stand down from the position immediately.

Michael was influential in his role as independent Chairman of HRA and as the Chair of the Inter Dominion Event Committee. Michael’s leadership was pivotal in helping guide the industry through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The HRA Executive team thanks Michael for his passion and contribution to harness racing nationally and wishes him all the best in the future.

The HRA Executive Members recently met and resolved to invite each States Controlling Body to nominate one person for the Executives consideration in filling the role of Independent Chairman of HRA.  An appointment will be made at the 2020 HRA Annual General Meeting later this year.

In the interim, Mr Ken Brown, current Vice-Chairman of HRA and Chairman of Harness Racing New South Wales, will undertake the role of Acting Chairman of HRA.

Ken Brown

Acting Chairman, 29 June 2020
