Rodney Moore, the General Manager of Dunedin’s Forbury Park Trotting Club, died on Saturday, aged 62.
It would have been two years next month since Moore took the reins at Forbury Park after previously working at Otago University and Wellington Cricket.
Moore, who was diagnosed with cancer last year, had been on a leave of absence for most of this year.
Under his watchful eye, the FPTC turned a profit in Moore’s first year at the helm after a huge deficit the year prior.
His funeral will be held on Friday in Dunedin.
