It is with deep sadness that the Chairman of HRNZ, Gary Allen announces the sudden death of our Vice Chairman Ray O’Connor.
Ray has been a valued member of HRNZ’s Board since 1999 and was Vice Chairman and our nominee to the Board of the Racing Integrity Unit.
Ray had more than 30 years involvement in racing; current Committee member and former President of Harness Racing Waikato, current Director and former Chair of Cambridge Raceway and former HRNZ appointment to the NZ Racing Board.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes to Christine and their Daughters and the extended O’Connor Family. His passing is a great loss to our Harness Racing fraternity and he will be sorely missed.
