Lord Howard leaves Arena Racing Company
Lord Howard has resigned from his position as chairman of the UK racecourse operator Arena Racing Company (ARC).
Former leader of the UK’s Conservative party, Lord Howard was first appointed to the position in 2008 and retained the role when Northern Racing merged with Arena Leisure in 2012, as reported by iGaming Business.
Tony Kelly, ARC’s managing director, said Lord Howard’s decision to resign was ‘not related’ to the company’s business or polices.
“We are sad to lose Lord Howard as our chairman but I understand that his decision is not related to the business or policies of ARC,” Kelly said.
“The Board of ARC wish Lord Howard well in his future endeavours and thank him for his invaluable input into the Company over the past six years.”
