Racing Queensland Restructures Its Integrity Division

Racing Queensland Limited (RQL) today announced the restructuring of the RQL integrity division, together with some key appointments.

Mr Wade Birch has been confirmed as Chief Steward of All Codes, as well as Chief Steward of Thoroughbreds.

Recognising that stewarding in Queensland is in a development phase, RQL is proud to announce the appointment of Mr Allan Reardon to the newly created position of Director of Steward Development.

Mr Reardon brings with him a wealth of knowledge having served as a senior steward on the Racing NSW panel, deputy chairman of stewards in Victoria and chairman of stewards in Queensland.

Chief steward of thoroughbreds Wade Birch has welcomed the appointment of Mr Reardon.

“Allan possesses the experience, attitude and approach to the role of stewarding that will serve to enhance the professional development of the stewards currently operating on the Queensland panel,” said Mr Birch.

Mr Reardon will commence his position as the director of steward development on July 30, 12.

The previous position of Director of Integrity will not be filled at this time, pending changes to be implemented through legislative changes that may be made in the future.
