Broadcaster Karyn Fenton-Ellis has called time on her Trackside career.

“Last week, I advised the New Zealand Racing Board’s John Allen and Andy Kydd that I did not intend to return to Trackside after the conclusion of this season of Weigh In,” she said.

“I will miss the team, the people who make the coverage happen and everyone who supports them. I will be involved in some projects from time to time, but I made this decision as I know the time is right for me. This was my, and my decision alone, to step down.

“I remember well first going to air on my birthday, November 6, 1992, together with George (Simon) for the pioneering first edition of Action TV.  A tiny team that had a dream and a quarter of a century on I look at the team with huge pride and respect.”
