David Aldred, the executive director of harness racing in British Columbia, today resigned his position and will return to Australia in February 2009 to serve as the new head of Harness Racing for South Australia.

HRSA selected Aldred, who is in his third term as the executive director of the BC Standardbred Association and BC Standardbred Breeders’ Society, to lead their industry after an international search and his appointment was endorsed by the harness racing board in South Australia yesterday.

BC Standardbred Association president, Jim Vinnell said that his board was hoping that Aldred would continue to lead the industry in BC for another three years.

“We have just completed a major study of our industry and commenced real projects as part of our five year plan and there is still plenty that needs to be achieved in BC. We were hoping that David would take us forward.

"David’s resignation is a huge blow to us and for horse racing in BC,” said Vinnell.

Until his departure, Aldred plans to focus on achieving the short term priorities for the BCSA and BCSBS and assist the board in identifying his replacement.
