James Fry Set To Retire From IRB


Newmarket Heath 

After 31 years, James Fry is set to take early retirement and will leave the Newmarket-based International Racing Bureau at the end of December. He will be succeeded in his role of director of trainers' services by Rob Hartley. 

Ian Russell, who worked for many years as travelling head lad to David Simcock, has also joined the trainers' services team as Max Pimlott moves across to racecourse services, working alongside Adrian Beaumont. 

Rob Hartley, Ian Russell and Barbie Hurrell will look after all European countries bar Scandinavia, which will be overseen by Max Pimlott, who also is the point of contact for runners in Hong Kong. Adrian Beaumont and Pimlott will also look after America, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
