New position for John Mooney.

Well-known industry figure John Mooney has been appointed to a new role as a Strategic Racing Advisor at Harness Racing New Zealand.

The appointment is for a fixed term of three months. The role will focus on a number of projects including horse utilisation, investigating a new handicapping system, preparing for the formation of a new National Racing Bureau, and building relationships with key stakeholders including Entain.

The role is not intended to replace the Racing Manager’s position which has been vacant since Catherine McDonald’s departure earlier this year.

Mooney, the executive manager of the NZ Standardbred Breeders Association, will report directly to Acting Chief Executive Mauro Barsi and the HRNZ Board.
