Leopardstown Racecourse appointed Jane Hedley as its new Racing and Operations Manager, a position she will take up during the forthcoming National Hunt season and Dublin Racing Festival. A former marketing and nominations executive for Shadwell and yard manager at Mark Johnston Racing for six years, she also served as Clerk of the Course Warwick, Nottingham and Market Rasen racecourses, in addition to positions at Jockey Club Racecourses, including Newmarket, Cheltenham and Aintree. More recently, Hedley was interim general manager at Nottingham.
“Jane is hugely experienced, passionate, highly knowledgeable and well respected within the industry and we are delighted to be welcoming her to Leopardstown Racecourse,” Tim Husbands MBE, CEO of Leopardstown Racecourse, commented.
Hedley added, “The chance to join the team at Leopardstown Racecourse, one of the leading Flat and National Hunt tracks, was too good an opportunity to pass up and I look forward to playing my part in reinforcing that status within the industry. Its heritage and sense of place, combined with the fantastic racegoer experience it already provides, makes it somewhere I'm really looking forward to being part of in the new year.”
