Panel Members

HRAP members are appointed by the AGCO Board based on experience and qualifications. Additionally, it is important that there is broad representation from the various sectors of the industry on the Panel, ensuring the appropriate experience and expertise is available. All Appointments are made through a competitive, merit-based process, with the intent to employ a broad cross-section of individuals with horse racing experience and ideally with one or more of the following qualifications: legal experience; scientific or medical/pharmacology expertise; governance background; experience in sport disputes; and knowledge of administrative justice principles. The appointments process helps to ensure that the HRAP operates and conducts appeals with integrity, and that the parties before it have confidence that they will be treated fairly and by an impartial panel.
