NHA puts Rahilly in charge in Kimberley

 Sep 13 2017

The National Horseracing Authority (NHA) is pleased to confirm that David Rahilly, a member of the Central Provinces Stipendiary Board, has been appointed as the resident stipendiary steward in Kimberley with immediate effect.

Rahilly has been employed by the NHA as a stipendiary steward for 2½ years. Before that he was involved in the industry as a jockey and trainer during a career spanning three decades.
Flamingo Park Racecourse in Kimberley hosts race meetings on Mondays three times a month and there are seven trainers based at the centre, which accommodates 400 race horses.

Due to its sand track this centre attracts a steady flow of visiting horses.
With this in mind the NHA deemed it appropriate that a full-time stipendiary steward be based in this Northern Cape city.

The NHA wishes Rahilly well in his task to ensure that Kimberley becomes a shining example of horsemanship and horseracing in general.
The NHA has also constituted a Rules Committee.

The members were announced yesterday in a press release which stated the composition of the committee reflected the NHA’s vision to include as many of its role players in its regulatory decisions and was in line with its consultative approach before enforcing any changes that might have an impact on the industry.

The members are: Cecil Beyleveld (chairman); Lyndon Barends (NHA Chief Executive); Arnold Hyde (NHA Racing Control Executive); Andrew O’ Connor; Advocate Panayiotis Stais SC; Rodney Trotter; Robert Bloomberg (owners’ representative); Larry Wainstein (owners); Piere Strydom (jockeys); Greg Cheyne (alternate jockeys’ representative); Mike de Kock (trainers); Tony Rivalland (alternate trainers’ representative).
