Orange To Host An Influx Of Stewards This Friday

 By Mark Brassel

There won’t be a more ‘policed’ race meeting in this country than Racing Orange’s Country Showcase Cup day this Friday.

The Club will stage the Ned Dougherty Memorial Handicap to honour former top jockey and Steward, Ned Dougherty. Mr Dougherty passed away in July 2015 after a long and distinguished career in the saddle and later on as a Steward.

“There will be a number of Stewards attending the meeting to pay tribute to Ned Dougherty including Racing Victoria’s Chairman of Stewards, Terry Bailey,” said popular racecaller, Col Hodges OAM.

“Terry Bailey was a cadet Steward with John Schreck before being posted to the bush where Ned was his boss.

“Terry has always attributed many of the things he learned along the way to Ned. And one was to always have clean shoes!

“Rex Terp, who is a part-time Steward in Victoria, was also a cadet under Ned and he ended up playing first-grade rugby league for St George.

“Rex will be attending as well as Sam Cochrane who has been a Victorian Steward for the past six years and hails from Orange.”

As a mark of respect for Ned’s wife, Racing Orange will name the fashions the ‘Pat Dougherty Fashions on the Field.’

Ned’s son, Kim, along with former outstanding jockeys ‘Miracle’ Mal Johnston and Kevin Langby will also be at Friday’s Orange race meeting.
