MICHAEL Leaf has resigned as a Director and Chairman of the Board of the Racing Association as at 6 April 2020.
Leaf served as a Trustee on the Thoroughbred Horseracing Trust and as a Director and Chairman on the Board of the Racing Association.
The RA noted in a press release: “Mr Leaf has served the industry with dedication since 2007 and his official term on the RA Board was due to conclude as at the end of July 2020. He therefore felt this was an opportune time for the current Board to consider new appointees.
“The board would like to thank Mr Leaf for his incredible dedication to the industry and the passionate role he played throughout his term of office.
“As you may be aware the RA is also following a process to appoint a new CEO. A short list has been drawn up but in light of the current lockdown we have decided to put the process on hold until such time as we have more certainty on the return of horse racing.”
