Stewards' inquiry findings to be posted on Twitter
Any social media followers baffled by the outcome of a stewards' inquiry now know where to go.
The BHA has launched a new dedicated Twitter account – @BHAStewards – which will communicate information directly from the stewards' room.
It will announce when information such as stewards' inquiry notices and race reports are placed on the BHA website, and provide updates such as changes of race information, inspections and other raceday details reported to, or considered by, the stewards.
BHA head of media Robin Mounsey said: "We're aware there are currently many different sources of information which racegoers, participants and the betting public must use in order to remain fully up to speed with events on raceday.
"This Twitter account is designed to make everyone’s life just a little bit easier by pushing out all the information which flows through the stewards' room into one handy social media feed.
"It will help us to be more open, transparent and put important information at people’s fingertips."
The aim is to ensure the public and media are aware when stewards’ inquiry notices relating to contentious decisions are available, with the BHA conscious of the fact that after major incidents there is a desire for information and explanations.
The BHA’s main Twitter account (@BHAPressOffice) will continue to be the source of general information and BHA news, with @BHAStewards solely a source of raceday information.
