Joey Newton, Fieldmaster of the Belvoir Hunt and Chair of the Melton Hunt Club, is to be the new Chairman for Racing Welfare, the racing charity.

From tomorrow, Joey will succeed Roger Weatherby as Chairman of the charity, which aims to help racing's people in need. Roger is to become the founding Chairman of The Racing Foundation after 11 years as a Trustee of Racing Welfare and five years as Chairman.

Joey Newton is a well-known face on the hunting fields of Leicestershire and at Garthorpe racecourse, where he is pictured here. He is a successful former amateur jockey, riding 45 winners in National Hunt races, including the Foxhunters at Aintree twice, and charting 110 Point-toPoint victories. He has been a racecourse steward since 1986, at courses including Aintree and Newmarket, and is currently a non-executive director of Huntingdon Racecourse. He became a Member of The Jockey Club in 1993.

Joey Newton said:

“It is a huge privilege to become Chairman of Racing Welfare. I am taking on the mantle from a man who has made a superb contribution to the charity and, as a result, to helping racing’s people in need.

“Roger and I both agree that one of the important next steps for the charity is to build its profile within the Thoroughbred racing and breeding industries. It’s important those who might need our help know what services are available to them and if more people understand, appreciate and make a contribution to support the charity’s work, we can do even more for racing’s people in need in the years to come.

"We’ve seen a huge volunteer force motivated to help Britain to deliver the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer. If those with an affinity for racing knew the difference they could make to our dependents, would we inspire more volunteers up and down the country to give up their time to support the work of Racing Welfare?”
