Charlie Parker, newly appointed president of the Racehorse Owners' Association, will join the Board of the British Horseracing Authority. Parker's three-year term with ROA begins on June 30, while a three-year term as BHA Director commences on July 1.
“Charlie will be a valuable addition to our team of Directors and I look forward to working alongside him, our colleagues nominated by racecourses, and the independent members of our Board,” said The BHA Chair, Annamarie Phelps. “I'd like to thank [outgoing ROA president] Nicholas [Cooper] for his contribution to the BHA Board in what has been a challenging period for racing.”
An owner for over 25 years with both flat and National Hunt horses, Parker owns and manages Crimbourne Bloodstock.
