Catherine Reid (nee Hewitt)- Committee
I have been a Race Day Steward at Wellington Racing Club since the 2011/12 season. My passion for horse racing began at a young age having grown up on a farm in the Wairarapa where my family bred thoroughbreds and I rode ponies competitively. My experience of race days is varied - having attended races throughout New Zealand, in Australia, Singapore and England and participated in “Fashion in the Field” events. Now I’m a horse owner, racing “Constellation” with Fairdale Stud.
As a Wellingtonian, having lived here for the past 15 years, I studied law at Victoria University and worked as a senior solicitor at national law firm, Chapman Tripp. My current role is a senior lawyer for Land Information New Zealand.
I am a passionate believer in Wellington Racing Club's future as a premier racing venue. As a Committee Member my focus would be on bringing youth, energy and strong networking skills to help inspire the next generation of racing enthusiasts. I believe it’s important for Trentham to maintain and develop its high standards for the benefit of all members, and to elevate the Club’s position in the racing industry.
