Change at the top for Caduceus Club

Changes have been announced to the running of the Caduceus Club Fillies Series.

Changes have been announced to the running of the Caduceus Club Fillies Series.

Long-time administrator Ken Crooke is winding back his involvement, after decades of “tireless work”.

“For more than 20 years Ken has been responsible for the marketing, compiling the entries and looking after the money, all of this on a purely voluntary basis,” says Auckland Trotting Club vice-president Jamie McKinnon, “ but the time has come to him to kick back, enjoy his racing and Caduceus Club camaraderie and hand over the reins.”

Ken Crooke will still be involved in running Series 23 and 24, with Series 25 and beyond being administered by the New Zealand Sires’ Stakes Board, and its Executive Martin Pierson.

The club runs two races a year at Alexandra Park, the Group One Woodlands Stud Caduceus Club Fillies Class (won in April by True Fantasy) and the Group Two Ladyship Stakes (The Peter Breckon Memorial), which was won in February by Bettor Twist.

McKinnon : “Ken was there from the beginning, along with good mate the late John Devlin and the committee. At the time their dream was to put back into an industry that had given them so much pleasure.”

“It was no mean feat to get these fillies races off the ground and to achieve Group 1 status was testament to their drive and commitment to make it happen.”

Foal nominations are now being accepted for Series 25, and they, along with sustaining payments, will close on July 1 2021.
