The Barbados Turf Club has made two notable changes at the end of the second season maintenance break.

Gone are race course consultant Gerry Alleyne, who held the post for just under two years, and paddock and building maintenance consultant Naz Issa.

When the third season runs off on November 9, David Archer is the man tasked with filling the roll of track and paddock consultant. Archer who took up the post from last Tuesday worked at Bloomfield as property manager and was manager at Valley Plantation.

Both Alleyne and trainer Issa who had replaced Charles Downie following his retirement back in 2017, got their letters of termination last Monday. (LY)
