Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner (QRIC) Ross Barnett has today accepted the resignation of Tracey Pelling, who has been serving in the role of QRIC Manager of Integrity Investigations since February 2018.

“Ms Pelling has been involved in a number of significant investigations which have resulted in the arrest of racing industry participants for serious integrity breaches ranging from match (race) fixing to serious animal cruelty,
“I wish Tracey all the best as she takes on this new opportunity, and know she will be an asset to Victorian racing integrity as she has been in Queensland for the past 3 years,” Commissioner Barnett said.
The position of QRIC Manager of Integrity Investigations will be advertised in due course.
