You will be a voting member of the Raceday panel, sitting on enquiries and working with the Chief Steward, Stewards’ Panel Chair, Assistant Stewards, Raceday Assistants and the other BHA Raceday Teams, ensuring the race meeting is run in accordance with the BHA Rules and Instructions.  You will be responsible for upholding the values of the British Horseracing Authority at all times.
